Around 7.15 p.m. last night a Highland Council tractor was making a valiant attempt to cut some of the extremely long grass in the Academy playing fields. A couple of our readers had informed us of the overgrown state of the fields and we went up to have a look for ourselves. The reports had not been exagerated. Below you can see one of the sets of rugby posts surrounded by almost knee high grass. It might take more than the machine pictured above to deal with it. Obviously something has gone wrong this year and the Academy haven't been able to keep up with the grass cutting. Maybe time for Highland Council to call in a combine harvester?
