An Ayrshire man who came to Lewis to work with horses plagued the owner with nuisance phone calls after they fell out.

William Kenny was not paid for being a groom but received free board and lodgings.

Things did not work out as planned and he returned to the mainland.

Last May he made number of phone calls from withheld numbers to the woman.

Some calls were silent while others were “rude and vulgar,” the court heard.

One time while local police officers were in the woman’s house the “phone was ringing through out their visit,” said procurator fiscal Karen Smith.

Police answered the phone several times and eventually unplugged it to have peace to take a statement from the victim the court was told.

Sheriff David Sutherland deferred sentence until July and instructed Kenny to be of good behaviour.
