VITAL repairs will force the temporary closure of the canal-side footpath in Dingwall for up to three days next week.

Highland Council has confirmed that workers will be on site daily between 9am and 3pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

The work is being carried out because of an uprooted tree on the bank of the River Peffrey.

A Highland Council spokeswoman said that unless if the void is left “it would eventually undermine the footpath”.

They added that the repairs are expected to cost less than £2000 to carry out, and are being undertaken to save money in the longer run by preventing the need to spend more if the footpath is gradually undermined by the void.

“Three days have been scheduled [for the work] but we are hopeful that works will be completed in a shorter timeframe,” they said.
