Police investigating a major fire that gutted the derelict Clachnaharry nursing home in Inverness have launched an appeal for information.

The former care home suffered massive damage after the blaze broke out in the early hours of Friday morning.

Firefighters battled for hours to stop the fire, which began at around 4.20am and caused part of the building to collapse.

The A862 Inverness to Beauly road was closed while firefighters tackled the blaze.

And now police have appealed for witnesses who may have seen anyone in the area at the time the fire began, to get in touch.
