The steel frame has been erected for what has been described as Scotland's first community-owned craft whisky distillery.

GlenWyvis Distillery Community Benefit Society is having the building constructed on a hillside near Dingwall.

Contractors are now working on adding the exterior walls.

The distillery's copper stills for making spirit could be installed later this month.

A crowdfunding appeal last year saw 2,600 people invest in the project.

A new share offer to gather further support is to be launched at the Black Isle Show at Muir of Ord on 3 August.
