The scene around midday as Alexander Brodie assisted by a local resident installs the gate across the road down to the Kingsteps car park. More pictures here. Short video here.
Alexander Brodie is no longer in a mood to compromise earlier in the week he commented on the Gurn: "I have read the article dated 27 November in the Inverness Courier where Provost Macdonald branded my above posted compromise as "ridiculous". Pity. According, I withdraw the offer.
I am sorry, but I can no longer negotiate over this matter. It is taking to much of my time, confounding me, getting nowhere and subjecting me to unwanted judgement etc. According, I withdraw all offers and will not be making others.
Thank you to the readers of the Gurn for your support and understanding, and to those who did not support - for your good cheer and humor. thanks also to the Gurn.
Alexander Brodie of Brodie"
