One of the longest established restaurants in Inverness will stay open after it was acquired by a city businesswoman.
Castle Restaurant in Castle Street, which first opened in 1957, was set to close yesterday, with the impact of the coronavirus crisis being a major factor.
But the venue has been saved due to new management.
Previous owners Richard and Lorraine Comfort stated: "I am pleased to tell you that a local businesswoman is going to take over from us and keep the Castle [Restaurant] open.
"So, business as usual from next week.
"Thank you for all your lovely messages and support.
"We will continue to operate at Comfort Foods and wish all the Castle staff all the best for this new chapter."
