A SOUTH Nesting crofter is calling for witnesses to come forward after his restored lambing house was vandalised over the weekend.
Walter Mouat, from Skellister, said a window and the door of the 12 by eight foot stone building had been damaged with grey paint.
He said he reported the vandalism to police on Monday and got a call back from the Dundee call centre the following day when the details of the case were recorded.
Mouat said he hopes his public appeal will help officers in their enquiries.
The crofter said he and his family had spent many thousands of pounds on doing up the building and seeing it vandalised was “very distressing”.
He urged anyone with information to get in touch with police on telephone 101.
