A MAN who cares for his vulnerable mother on the Black Isle was left regretting a decision to bring shopping to her when he was over the limit.
Inverness Sheriff Court heard that Kyle Mackay (45) of McInnes Place in Inverness had been drinking when he drove to Munlochy for his parent, who suffers from dementia.
Police received an anonymous phone call alerting them to a possible drink-driver and stopped him near Arpafeelie on February 8 this year.
A breath test revealed he was almost three times the legal limit.
His reading was 58mcgs of alcohol when the limit is 22mcgs.
The court heard it was his second conviction of a similar nature.
Mackay was fined £320 and banned from driving for three years.
