Harry Potter author, JK Rowling, patron of the MS Society of Scotland held a masked ball at Stirling Castle on Friday night and helped raise £200,000 ($351,060) from the event.
The ball included an auction with a diamond necklace donated by the author, a chance to become a hero or villain in Ian Rankin's next Rebus novel and a treasure hunt, with the clues written by Rowling. Among the many guests to attend was actor Robbie Coltrane.
