A Thurso man who admitted making indecent phone calls to three women was given a chance to demonstrate he can stay out of trouble.

Two women in Caithness and a third in Macduff each received a call between October 11, 2019, and April, 2021.

Wick Sheriff Court was told on Wednesday that the women were known to the 50-year-old accused, William Fraser. They said that he had "an odd and vulgar sense of humour".

Fraser, of Rotterdam Street, Thurso, was intoxicated at the time but had rung each of them back, immediately, apologising.

Sheriff Mark Lindsay QC, who saw a background report, described Fraser's behaviour as "disgraceful" and expressed the hope that the accused had "learned a valuable lesson" and stressed there could no repetition of the offences.

The sheriff made Fraser subject to a six-month good behaviour bond and banned him from having any further contact with the women.
