A CIVIC reception was held on Monday evening to mark the visit of the Moderator of the Church of Scotland.

Earlier in the day the Moderator had visited Caithness General Hospital and Pulteney House care home in Wick. And today he is due to visit North Highland College UHI in Thurso and attend a guild gathering at Thurso West Church.

On Wednesday he will be at Dunbeath Primary School and the Dunbeath Centre, and will address a public meeting of the local presbytery.
