Highland Council has released information on temporary road and street closures in Inverness during the march.

Organisers, All Under One Banner, have urged supporters to bring “flags, banners, pipes & drums.”

This week long-serving SNP MP Angus MacNeil called for a second referendum on Scottish independence within 12 months following a crunch Westminster Brexit vote, which saw Theresa May avoid a damaging Brexit defeat in the Commons.
