Donald Macdonald, the Scottish Conservative Party's prospective parliamentary candidate in Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross, made a fact-finding visit to Scotland's largest nuclear decommissioning project at Dounreay on March 21.

The former head teacher saw at first hand the progress being made to demolish the fast reactor experiment. He also met management and trade union officials.

A key topic of discussion was the efforts being made to develop alternative jobs to replace those that will be lost as decommissioning progresses.

Mr Macdonald said: "The skilled workforce here at Dounreay has the potential to become a dynamic force in the economic regeneration of the north of Scotland. I learned a lot about the hopes and aspirations of the workforce as a result of my visit."
