Holyrood bosses have chosen two quotations, which have been carved in stone and will take their place on one of the Parliament's walls.

The wall, which is part of the Canongate section of the building, already has 24 quotes engraved on it.

And one of the two new quotes will be the first from a woman to feature on it.

Lines from Oh Dear Me (The Jute Mill Song) by the Dundee songwriter Mary Brooksbank has been chosen to go on the wall, along with an extract from A Man Is Assynt by Edinburgh poet Norman MacCaig.

A competition to find the new quotes was held earlier this year during the Scottish Parliament's 10th anniversary celebration.

More than 300 suggestions were put forward by members of the public and the winning quotes were chosen by a panel of MSPs and literary experts.

Holyrood presiding officer Alex Fergusson MSP said: "The Canongate wall was always supposed to be a living wall, one that we would add to when the time was right, and the 10th anniversary year of the Scottish Parliament has presented us with an ideal opportunity to do this.

"One of the greatest successes of the Parliament has been its record of engaging with the people of Scotland and this search has resulted in submissions from every corner of the country.

"The extracts chosen reflect two aspects of Scotland's character: its tough industrial heritage and its inspiring natural beauty."

Green MSP Robin Harper chaired the panel which chose the quotes.

He said Mary Brooksbank is a "much-loved and well-known folk musician" and that Norman MacCaig's poems "often evoke the majesty of the Scottish landscape".

Mr Harper said: "I am delighted that after a very thorough vetting of more than 300 suggestions, the panel came to a unanimous decision on the two quotes for the Parliament wall."
