The rubbish dumped at South Head.

Wooden industrial pallets, plastic packing boxes, parts of a bed and what appear to be sheets, a mattress or clothing were dumped along a stretch of the scenic coastline to the south of Wick.

It is the latest such incident in what has been turning into an increasingly popular area for flytippers.

Mr Mackay said: "If only these flytippers would stop and realise the unsightliness they are creating and that Caithness is a beautiful county, so let’s keep it that way.

"This rubbish would have been had to be transported there and for a few minutes more could easily have been delivered to Wick’s recycling centre."

Flytipping can be reported at the council service point, on 01349 886 603 or online at highland.gov.uk/info/1054/rubbish_and_recycling/89/litter_and_fly-tipping
