WORK to declutter the Highland capital's High Street got under way this week.

The £34,510 project is aimed at improving the "environmental aesthetics" and to make a better pedestrian/cyclist experience by having fewer obstacles, according to Highland Council.

It includes taking away some bollard and light poles as well as refurbishing some benches.

A council spokeswoman said: "The removal of extraneous street furniture and restoration of paved surfaces will improve the amenity of the area and thus deliver public benefit."
