A Boat of Garten man who was told by his partner that she wanted to end the relationship left their home for the night to allow them time to think.

But Inverness Sheriff Court heard yesterday that 45 year old Angus Farquhar's partner decided to seek advice from Women's Aid.

The court was told she was advised not to allow him back to the Craigie Avenue property in Boat of Garten the following day on August 30, 2023 as had been agreed between them.

Fiscal depute Karen Poke told Sheriff Sara Matheson: "When he returned, the doors were locked and he became angry.

"His partner decided to speak with him and unlocked the door.

"He acted aggressively towards her and was shouting and swearing at her, saying: 'Why did you lock the door to my own house'."

Farquhar, now of Spey Avenue, Aviemore, admitted threatening or abusive behaviour.

His solicitor Marc Dickson said: "He was upset and frustrated by what happened."

Farquhar was fined £940.
