B&B owner keeps 'no gays' stance

A GUEST house owner was unrepentant last night despite being dropped by VisitScotland for refusing a gay couple a room and branding them "sexual deviants".

The tourism body took action against Tom Forrest, the proprietor of the Cromasaig guest house in Wester Ross, who told Stephen Nock and his partner they could not stay in a double room.

VisitScotland has withdrawn the premises from its quality assurance scheme and its website for his "appalling treatment" of the couple.

A VisitScotland spokesman said: "We have given Mr Forrest the opportunity to assure us that he will not offend potential guests in the future but he has refused to do this.
