Homes on Inverness bull stud land rejected

Proposals to allow dozens of homes to be built on three fields on bull stud farm in Inverness have been rejected by a Scottish government Reporter.

The planning official has recommended that the land at Knocknagael be retained for agricultural use.

Highland Council earmarked the fields for housing in its Inner Moray Firth development plan.

The government-owned bull stud rents out its animals to crofters and farmers.

Knocknagael and adjoining Balrobert form the Scottish government's bull stud.

The scheme has its roots in the Victorian age.
