A sculpture of the famous Scots poet Robert Burns is being unveiled by Princess Anne in Dumfries.
The sculpture, which features some of Burns' most famous poems, including Tam O' Shanter and "To a mouse", is commemorating the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
Local artist David Gulland designed the sculpture, which was then created from Dumfries sandstone by stonemason David Little.
The centre piece focuses on the Dumfriesshire landscape, with a gently flowing stream and a number of sheep- referring to Burns' well known song "Ca the yowes to the knowes".
