After incidents on the Isle of Gigha at New Year, a man living in East Kilbride appeared before the April sitting of Campbeltown Sheriff Court.

Charles Donaghy, aged 39, admitted having a knife and maliciously throwing a brick, which struck and damaged a door.

Procurator fiscal depute Mark Nicol said people at a house on Gigha heard a noise outside, went out to investigate and saw Donaghy throw an object.

Police were called and when Donaghy, of 9 Burnbrae, Westwood, was located, he was found to have the knife and he also needed first aid for a hand injury.

The cost of the damage was £600, the court was told.

Sheriff Patrick Hughes called for reports to be prepared on Donaghy and he will appear before the court again at its May sitting.
