Pupils at Evanton's Kiltearn Primary School have been given a school trip to remember at the Novar Estate while learning about tourism in Scotland.
P5 and P6 pupils from the Easter Ross school were invited to visit Novar Estate as part of a special field trip. Novar is the neighbouring estate to the village of Evanton.
The school children were made to feel very welcome by the Munro Ferguson family and their staff, the school said.
The pupils were given a tour of Ardtallo house and the walled gardens facing Fyrish Monument, which the class had been learning about in school.
Mrs Erica Munro Ferguson also accompanied the pupils to their shooting and fishing sites where they were able to meet the gamekeepers and try out some fishing.
Class teacher, Mrs Louise Ross, said: "The visit was the highlight of the year for many pupils and an unforgettable experience. It taught them a lot about why the Highlands are such an important and special place to visit. It's amazing to see what is available in our local area for tourists and how lucky we are to be able to appreciate such natural beauty so close to home. I am sure the pupils will remember this trip for a long time."
