Remembrance Day services have been taking place at war memorials throughout Orkney today.

The biggest event in the county took place in Kirkwall as numerous uniformed organisations and Legion members paraded between the Kirkwall Branch of the Royal British Legion and St Magnus Cathedral, led by Kirkwall City Pipe Band.

A service led by Lieutenant Michael Hutchings of the Salvation Army was held on the Kirk Green, before the traditional wreath laying ceremony took place in front of the Kirkwall and St Ola War Memorial.

The parade then moved inside St Magnus Cathedral for a service led by Rev Fraser Macnaughton.
