In May, a rally in Glasgow attracted tens of thousands of Scottish independence supporters.

The Inverness rally, which is scheduled to take place this afternoon, will result in some road closures, Highland Council have said.

Ardross Terrace and Culduthel Road will be closed between 13:00 and 14:45.
