A man who brandished a chainsaw at a caravan site will learn his fate next month.
Walter Johnstone, of 117 Whineford Avenue, Broxburn, appeared at Oban Sheriff Court yesterday and admitted breaching the peace at the Ledaig site at Oban, on July 19.
The 45-year-old brandished the chainsaw near an occupied caravan, placing people there and police officers in a state of fear and alarm.
Sentence was deferred until September 16 for background reports.
Johnstone attempted to have a bail condition preventing him from entering the site lifted.
But Sheriff Susan Sinclair refused after fiscal Eoin McGinty said: “Police saw him for at least five minutes, holding it above his head in the driving rain, and revving it.”
