Road markings have been painted the wrong way round in a Highland community.

The junction of Beaufort Road with Cawdor Road in the Crown area should have double broken lines, signifying drivers to give way, on the left-hand side of the junction, but instead over the weekend they have been painted on the other side.

Eagle-eyed driver driver Brian MacLeod (36), from Crown, noticed the mistake.

He said: "I despair. It is pretty basic that the lines should have been painted in the correct place. I hope they managed to fix them soon as it will cause a bit of confusion."

A Highland Council spokeswoman said: “We are investigating how this has happened and will ensure that it is rectified as soon as possible.”
