Vandals have caused damage running to thousands of pounds at the new Highland Archive and Registration Centre in Inverness.

The 10.5m pound building which will house and preserve historical documents is due to open a week on Monday.

Police said windows at the centre at the Bught were broken sometime between Wednesday and Thursday.

Historical documents from Highland presbyteries and Kirk sessions are also to transfer from Edinburgh to the centre, along with documents relating to the Highland Clearances and other papers dating from before the Battle of Culloden and a Highland photographic archive, containing 150,000 images.
