A man has been arrested after a fire caused “extensive damage” to buildings at the Findhorn Foundation.
Emergency services were called to the community near the Moray coast at about 2am today.
Seven fire crews plus the welfare unit from Inverness were dispatched to the scene to tackle the blaze at its peak and care for people affected.
