Sheriff Neil Wilson heard that Robertson, a general worker, failed a breath test after he was stopped by police officers in the Mount Pleasant area of Thurso, on March 16.

A follow-up test, later, produced a reading of 58mg - the legal limit is 22mg.

Sheriff Wilson gave Robertson, of Ackergill Street, Wick, credit for his early plea and the fact he had co-operated fully with the police but made the point that the accused had been more than twice the legal limit.
