Highland council houses could be built on NTS land

A local authority has proposed building council houses on land it would buy from the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) and housing associations.

The move could lead to 29 new properties being built in Inverness, Lochalsh and Wester Ross.

The potential sites are in Inverness, Dornie, Gairloch and a former diary at Balmacara owned by NTS.

Highland councillors have been asked to approve the purchase the land at a total cost of £370,000.
