Olympic gold medal-winning Scottish rower Katherine Grainger is to deliver the annual Royal Society of Edinburgh Christmas Lecture.

Grainger - who has links with Glasgow, Aberdeen and Edinburgh - triumphed at London 2012 in the women's double scull with Anna Watkins.

She will deliver the lecture to 300 schoolchildren at Lochaber High School in Fort William on 11 December.

Entitled The Journey to Gold, the talk will cover her sporting achievements.

The Royal Society of Edinburgh promotes learning and knowledge.

BBC Scotland is to make the lecture available as a live webcast.

Grainger is among the candidates for this year's BBC Sports Personality of the Year award.
