A VANDAL has been praised for “improving” the appearance of a Highland bus with graffiti.
Police Scotland posted an image on the Stagecoach vehicle along with an appeal to try to find the culprit – but most social media users have complimented the artist.

Tweeting the photo of the Stagecoach bus, Lochaber&SkyePolice wrote: “This. #Dunvegan over the weekend. Really?! Please let us know who is stupid enough to do this so they can be made to clean it.”
Most social media users were admiring of the graffiti artist.
Sarah Louise Jack wrote: “Got to say, who ever did this is quite talented, if you find out who did it, let me know, my boy would love his bedroom done …… paint supplied.”
Natalie Zoe Cooper commented: “Vandalised how?..looks better than ever”

Elaine Robertson said: “Done a good paint job but taking a fire extinguisher off the vehicle now puts that vehicle off the road till it is refitted which means a reduced service in rural areas!”
Jono Robson responded: “Love the paint job but taking the fire extinguisher is
