The Glasgow Herald (p13) reports that the multi-million pound aquadrome due to open in Inverness next March could break even, but that some Highland councillors fear that it could become a financial burden.

Councillors are worried that the predicted numbers of users will not be realised.

Highland council director of cultural and leisure services Alan Jones told the paper that he is more optimistic.

'The figures we have got are on the conservative side. for a similar facility in Perth, they projected 400,000 swims a year. In the first year they had 730,000.

'It plateaued at 600,000 and that has been the case for the past eight years,' he said.
