Lord Cawdor's vision for the West side

'The plans include 300 homes as well as tourism facilities such as an 18-hole championship golf course, an equestrian centre and a hotel.' More here.

Elsewhere today Danny Alexander MP is agitating for a rail halt at Dalcross airport. Among his arguments on the P&J website are.

“There is no funding assigned at all, and no plan to begin work.

“That is totally unacceptable when the A96 is already the most congested road in the Highlands.

“The delays faced by people travelling between Inverness and Nairn are only set to become more serious.

It would make sense to dual the track all the way to Nairn and increase the level of services in the longer run wouldn't it? Then we could have a few more halts and maybe branch lines when/if new communities spring up. Just a thought, just a wee gurn because that is the level of investment that will be needed if there is to be an alternative to the roads.
