A planning notice for the development of stables and holiday lodges close to Culloden Battlefield has been submitted months after a previous scheme was rejected.

The proposed £1million development at TreeTops Stables, Faebuie, includes four-star holiday lodges and a 100-seat restaurant.

It was rejected in May after almost 100 objections were received by Highland Council.

The new pre-planning Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) has been submitted by developer Inverness Paving.

It will be for holiday lets, leisure and hospitality facilities and the lodges would range between 25 and 60 square metres.

A revised planning application is expected to be submitted next year which will contain further details of changes made to the original scheme.

It was rejected by council officials because of its impact on the surrounding woodland and natural environment.

Inverness Paving has previously claimed the scheme could create up to 25 jobs.

The area is thought to be where government troops set off into the battle in 1746.
