A new brewery and visitor attraction have been proposed for a riverside site in Inverness.

If given planning permission, they would be built on land between 8 and 10 Ness Bank next year.

The project has been proposed by Jon and Victoria Erasmus who have owned the Glen Mhor Hotel and Apartments at Ness Bank since 2006.

The couple said a German brewing plant and Scottish ingredients would be used to produce new Highland beers.

The visitor attraction would include a shop and an art gallery.

The Erasmus family said the project could create at least 12 jobs.
