A familiar face is back pounding the beat, so to speak, in Fort William from this week after news that Isla Campbell has returned to her previous post as the police inspector based at the town’s station.

Inspector Campbell’s return comes in the wake of Inspector Nick Hough’s retirement and the news was welcomed at this week’s Kilmallie Community Council, which covers the police station’s Blar Mhor location.

Community council chairman, John Hutchison, described the news of Inspector Campbell’s return as heartening.

He added: ‘She has been doing other duties but is now back as from the weekend there, so at least we have some who lives here and knows the area and is pretty approachable.’

Inspector Campbell first took the top job at Fort William back in 2017 when she replaced Inspector Donald Campbell, a native of Barra, who retired that year.

Inspector Campbell (Isla) was brought up in Fort William and joined the then Grampian Police as a cadet in 1991, becoming a PC two years later.
