A fisherman who went on a drinking spree and abused his partner is to get help for alcohol abuse.

Sheriff Sara Matheson placed Lebre Macpherson (36) on 18 months of social work supervision, to include assistance with his alcohol problem, when he appeared at Inverness Sheriff Court.

It heard Macpherson – whose address was given as the fishing vessel “Khelorin”, in Oban – had admitted behaving in a threatening manner at the home he and his partner shared at Mill Croft, Dores, between October 10 and 12.

Fiscal depute Niall Macdonald said that on the first occasion his mood deteriorated while drinking and he became aggressive and directed insults at his partner.

He apologised but, on October 12, drank again, criticised her friends and smashed a beer bottle over his head before shouting and swearing outside.
