A man made subject to a non-harassment order breached it and left his ex terrified, Inverness Sheriff Court has heard.
Inverness Sheriff Court was told Lee Macdonald and his partner had been together for 12 years before they separated in 2019.
Fiscal depute Martina Eastwood said Mrs Macdonald had been parked in Millbank Crescent, Nairn on November 10 when a black BMW parked beside her.
She became aware of Macdonald walking round her car so drove away.
When he followed she activated a panic device given to her by police.
The fiscal said at one stage she realised he was no longer following so she went back to park her car and was advised by her call handler to remain in her vehicle.
Macdonald later pulled up beside the woman's car again and opened the back door.
The fiscal said she was terrified.
Solicitor Emma McEwan said there was clearly no love lost between the couple, but Macdonald's intention was never to cause fear.
Macdonald (38), of Montrose Avenue, Auldearn, appeared from custody and admitted breaching the non-harassment order and several other offences.
Sheriff Margaret Neilson deferred sentence for reports until December 10 and he was remanded until that date.
