Sir, – Although I was not surprised when I read the front page and inside story in The Courier (“Radical health shake-up scraps in-patient care” January 13) about the impending closure of Montrose Infirmary, I still felt both anger and disappointment that yet another patient care facility is being lost to North Angus.

Sir, – Two recent surveys of house prices (The Courier, January 1) seem to have conflicting conclusions but, as stated one, Halifax, covers Perth and the other, Aberdein Considine, covers Perthshire.
