A little light in the darkness from this Highland Council Press Release:
"The first new council houses to be built in Nairn for 16 years will soon be allocated to tenants.
8 2-bed bungalows for older people at Corsee, Nairn, have been completed and have been handed over to the Council by contractor UBC Group Ltd.
Tenants have been identified for the properties and hopefully will move in before Christmas.
The cost of the project is £770,000.
Councillor Margaret Davidson, Chairman of the Council's Housing and Social Work Committee, said: "After an absence of 16 years, it is great to back providing council houses in Nairn. The new homes at Corsee will provide eagerly-awaited accommodation for older people.
"The Nairn homes are part of a wider Council house building programme, currently featuring 202 houses throughout the Highlands. Our longer term target is to build 750 council houses by 2015." "
