Clan jewels are being replicated to honour the inauguration of the first chief of one of Scotland's most ancient clans - after more than 340 years.
John Michael Baillie-Hamilton Buchanan, 63, was appointed chief of Clan Buchanan - known as The Buchanan - and will lead the first Clan Parliament since 1681.
The dad-of-four is manager of the clan's seat, Cambusmore Estate, Perthshire, and is married to The Lady Buchanan.
The jewels are being made for the inauguration of Mr Buchanan, who will take the throne in October after being identified following years of genealogical research.
Among the pieces is a replica silver Jacobite rose, which was originally presented to the clan in the 18th century.
It was given to them after Francis Buchanan of Arnpryor, a treasurer and armourer of Bonnie Prince Charlie, was executed in 1746 for stockpiling weapons before Culloden.
A replica of the Silver Sword of Leny, which was reportedly first presented to the Chief's ancestor by King Cullen around 970, has also been made.
The sword disappeared after Culloden but acted as an early legal symbol of the clan's ownership of land around Callander.
The symbol became embedded on the Buchanan coat of arms.
Mr Buchanan, a retired civil engineer of Cambusmore Estate in Perthshire, said the jewels will be replicated by local craftspeople.
He said the passing of the clan jewels to the new chief was symbolic of the importance of continuity and the ongoing spirit of the clan.
Mr Buchanan said: "The 'clan jewels' symbolise the soul of the clan.
"It was vital to research and replicate each item in order to honour our history and heritage.
"The skilled and dedicated work from a number of local Scottish craftspeople has led to the creation of an intricate collection capturing the essence of the clan's past, while embracing its evolution into the modern day."
Silversmith Roddy Young, from Inverness, worked on several of the pieces for the inauguration.
He recreated the insignia of the Sword of Leny from a drawing of the original as well as the Jacobite rose and a new cromach, a type of crook, which features a silver bear.
Mr Young said: "I feel very honoured indeed to have been chosen to work on creating a new set of Buchanan 'clan jewels', some of them based on recreating historic pieces, but others made from new, adding a contemporary twist.
"This project has made full use of my broad range of skills as a craftsman, incorporating very traditional silversmithing along with the latest digital techniques.
"Thanks to the excellent historical research carried out by The Lady Buchanan, the challenging design brief has gone smoothly so far, and I look forward to working on the next set of pieces for the inauguration in October."
A stone throne, which features two falcons, has also been carved for the inauguration by a local stonemason.
The last Chief of Clan Buchanan was John Buchanan, who died in 1681 without a male heir.
