Highland councillors have approved plans for a new £44m school campus in Tain in Easter Ross.

Children aged from three to 18 would receive nursery and school education in new buildings proposed for the site of the current Tain Royal Academy.

Knockbreck Primary, Craighill Primary and St Duthus special school would be closed once the new campus is ready.

Some responses to public consultation on the plans raised concerns about having pupils of all ages on one site.

The Scottish government will be informed of the decision. The government has the option to call in the plans for consideration.
