The Culloden battlefield site is being scanned to provide a detailed model of the landscape 270 years on from the Jacobites' final stand.

Archaeologists from the National Trust for Scotland are using cutting-edge, laser-scanning technology to create the digital model.

Aerial Lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) is captured by using a pulsed laser beam fired from a plane.

It is hoped the model will help trace remains from the bloody battle.
