Nine face Fort Augustus Abbey abuse allegations

Nine men have been reported to the procurator fiscal in connection with alleged abuse at a former Catholic boarding school in the Highlands.

Prosecutors are considering the claims linked to Fort Augustus Abbey.

The Crown Office said the reports were submitted to the fiscal in Inverness.

A spokesperson said: "The procurator fiscal has received reports concerning nine men in relation to incidents alleged to have occurred between September 1967 and December 1992."

The statement added: "The reports remain under consideration."

The former school was run by Benedictine monks but closed down in the 1990s.
