An 80-year-old man has been charged in relation to the Fort Augustus abuse case

A MAN has been charged in connection with the historic physical and sexual abuse that took place at Fort Augustus Abbey from the 1970s.

An 80-year-old man from the east Highland area has been charged after police enquiries and a report detailing the circumstances has been filed to the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal.

The school, now closed, was run by the Benedictine order.

Last month, Father Francis Davidson resigned from his post at an Oxford College, over claims he had helped cover up abuse that took place during the 1970s.
