An official application has been submitted to NHS Highland for a pharmacy to be opened up in the village of Castletown in Caithness.

Glasgow-based Apple Pharmacy Group has sought permission to open up a premises in a former chip shop on MacKay Street.

Many members of the community have opposed the plan.

Local GPs dispense as well as prescribe medicines and there are concerns that the viability of the practice will be harmed if the chemist goes ahead.

NHS Highland will make a decision on the plans later this year.
