Historic Scotland has called for Dounreay nuclear power plant to be made a scheduled monument.

The decommissioned reactor was built in the 1950s and has a unique golf-ball shape. But a clean-up campaign to return its site to pre-nuclear condition has found that traces of radioactivity could take 300 years to disappear.

The heritage body is also considering the 1964 Forth Road Bridge for category A listed status.
