Plans which could see a flood barrier wall built in Inverness will be the subject of a public meeting next month.
Highland Council is consulting on how best to protect homes and properties along the River Ness, which cuts through the heart of the city.
The local authority previously withdrew plans for a four foot wall, but campaigners fear they could be put back on the table and say the city's best asset would be destroyed.
Inverness Civic Trust (ICT) has opposed the plans as it claims they could destroy views of the river.
John West, of ICT, said: "We understand what the wall is trying to do but the implications of the wall are that it's going to change the ethos of the city totally, that you're going to drive through that part of Inverness and never see the river and even if you're walking in many instances you'll not see the river, and we feel that that is too drastic a solution to the problem."
The meeting will be held in the Glenmoriston Hotel in Inverness at 7.30pm on September 20.
