The demolition of a twice-ravaged Easter Ross primary school will begin next month.

Highland Council has announced that it has appointed demolition contractor, Central Demolition, to begin the removal of the former main building at Park Primary School in Invergordon.

The school was devastated by fire in February 2020.

It suffered a second major fire almost exactly 12 months later.

Pupils have meanwhile been absorbed into the space freed up at Invergordon Academy while plans for a replacement school are finalized.

The local authority has indicated that Central Demolition will begin moving into place from Monday 4 April.

He said the work will include securing the adjacent municipal car park next to the school.

He said: ‘Therefore Highland Council is asking neighboring properties to refrain from using this car park from Sunday 3rd April.
