The Courtyard by Marriott brand will make its debut in Inverness this year, with work under way on the new hotel. 

When it opens later in 2019, the property - developed and owned by Molo Hotels - will be operated by hotel management company RBH.  

Andrew Robb, RBH chief business development officer, said: "The start of works on site comes at an exciting time for us, as we kick off a year which will see us undertake more hotel openings than ever before."

Contractor Polcom Construction has already begun building the hotel bedrooms at its factory in Gdansk, Poland before they are transported to the hotel site ready for the final build.

James Campbell, chairman of Inverness Airport Business Park (IABP), said: "Having a hotel on site is a major boost for both IABP and Inverness Airport and I'm sure many tourism and other local businesses will benefit when the hotel opens later this year."
