The Kirking of the Council is a ceremony held on the first Sunday in September which recognises the work of Christian and other faith groups within the City of Inverness. It also seeks Divine blessing on the work of elected members and other city officials. The tradition dates back to the early 17th century.

This film shows the combined Pipe Bands of the Royal British Legion and Northern Constabulary leading eight uniformed youth groups along High Street and down Church Street to the Old High Kirk - the oldest church in the City. They were joined there by pupils and teachers from the City's Secondary Schools, together with officials and Councillors. The service was led by Reverend Peter Nimmo and Right Reverend Mark Strange, Bishop of Moray, Ross & Caithness.
