A statue to commemorate King Robert the Bruce's links with Aberdeen has been unveiled.

The original idea came from a council motion calling for the city to recognise the debt owed to King Robert the Bruce as a benefactor.

The city's Common Good Fund was developed as a direct result of a charter he issued in 1319.

The £120,000 statue, outside Marischal College, was created by sculptor Alan B Herriot.

The statue, selected after a competition for the design, was funded by the Common Good Fund.

Marischal College is due to open as the new headquarters of Aberdeen City Council later this year.
