'Naked rambler' denies charge
Steve Gough
Gough denied a breach of the peace charge
The man dubbed the "naked rambler" has been remanded in custody after appearing in court in the Highlands.

Stephen Gough, who is trying to walk naked from Land's End to John O'Groats, appeared at Dingwall Sheriff Court on Monday.

He had been released from the same court three days earlier.

The 44-year-old, from Eastleigh, Hampshire, was freed on Friday after being admonished.

He had been found guilty of conducting himself in a disorderly manner and committing a breach of the peace when he was seen walking naked in woods near Tore in Ross-shire.

Disorderly manner

He was re-arrested less than two hours after his release when he resumed his naked walk.

On Monday he denied committing a breach of the peace near the Cromarty Bridge in Ross-shire by conducting himself in a disorderly manner by walking naked in the presence of the public.

The case is due to come to trial early in November.
