Highland Council intend to build 49 houses in Ullapool, on the site of the former Glenfield Hotel.

The council bought the 1.91-hectare Old Moss Road site in 2013, and the hotel and staff annex were demolished the following year. A spokeswoman said a final decision on the mix of housing tenure had still to be agreed.

She added: “Planning consent is sought for a mixed-tenure development that will include houses and flats for rent by the council and housing association as well as opportunities for low-cost home ownership and outright purchase.

“Depending on gaining all statutory consents it is anticipated that works will commence on a first phase of around 16 units during late summer 2017 with the first houses being completed late 2018.”
