The Princess Royal is visiting Dumfries today to unveil a sculpture of poet Robert Burns.
"Robert Burns' Rock" was gifted by The People's Project to the people of Dumfries and Galloway to mark the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
The sculpture, which sits opposite the statue of Burns' wife Jean Armour near to St. Michael Street, has been created from Dumfries sandstone by David Little.
