Stornoway Golf Club beats Sunday alcohol ban

An islands golf club has won its legal fight to sell alcohol on Sundays.

Western Isles Licensing Board has twice refused applications from Stornoway Golf Club to serve alcohol with Sunday lunches.

Following a court hearing in Inverness, Acting Sheriff Charles Stoddart has overturned the board's refusal of a drinks licence.

The club wants to increase income at weekends. It is still barred from allowing golf being played on Sundays.
