Drumnadrochit War Memorial at Loch Ness has been named Champion of Champions in the Best Kept War Memorial Awards.

Drumnadrochit War Memorial at Loch Ness has been named Champion of Champions in the Best Kept War Memorial Awards awarded by the Royal British Legion. The awards, which are the 36th annual Best Kept War Memorial Awards, were judged by Bill Tait, a retired garden specialist; John Morton of Kelso; and John Porter, a retired chairman of the Royal British Legion Scotland.

Among the other winners of awards were Jedburgh (pictured) which was highly commended, along with Kelso and Hawick, with Duns receiving a highly commended in the Small Community with Gardens section.

Chief judge Bill Tait said: 'Generally memorials were in good condition although points were deducted where moss or weeds were seen. It was good to see that Hawick had used a high-pressure water jet to clear algae from the stonework. Others take note.'
