In a letter to Dornoch and District Community Council, Duncan Allan said that one of the joys of “old Dornoch” was the “splendid mature trees that enhance the town”.

“During my spell I planted 11 trees in Dornoch Square which are starting to take effect,” he wrote.

But he added that trees were not being planted in new housing areas, particularly in Deans Court and Allan Gardens – a housing scheme named in his honour.

“I should be most grateful if Dornoch Community Council would insist that tree planting is carried out so that new housing areas would become leafy suburbs rather than stark grey housing," he stated.
