Plans for a multimillion-pound redevelopment of a popular Inverness hotel could take a major step forward next week.
The owners of the Glen Mhor Hotel, on the banks of the River Ness, want to create a glass-fronted brewery, restaurant and visitor centre at their premises.
It would resurrect the tradition of brewing in the Haugh, where the industry disappeared in the 1700s.
Hotel owners Jon and Victoria Erasmus previously described the project as one of the “most ambitious in the city centre”.
Under the proposals, diners would be offered panoramic views over the water and up to a dozen jobs would be created.
Now councillors will get their say on the plans at the Highland Council’s south planning applications committee on Tuesday.
Despite a number of concerns from residents about noise, odours and the impact on views of the river, planners have recommended the proposals be approved.
Planner Jim Harbison said there were issues over the deliveries and coach drop-offs but said the proposal will bring benefits for tourism.
He also praised the design as high quality.
