A BRIDGE used by the Ness Islands Railway has been repaired after it was targeted by vandals four months ago.

The miniature railway, which has carried thousands of tourists and locals over the years was bought by Highland Hospice in April as a money-making venture for the charity.

A hospice spokesman said: "We are delighted that the bridge at our Ness Islands Railway was been repaired and is fully operational again. Huge thanks to everyone who has supported the railway in its first year with Highland Hospice."

The much-loved railway is set to undergo an ambitious £70,000 refurbishment over the next three years.

It is currently open at weekends and is due to close on October 27 for the winter.
