AN ARRAN man has admitted having sexual activity with a 14-year-old.

Thomas Griffiths Remmington, of Auchrannie Road in Brodick, admitted engaging in penetrative sexual activity with or towards a 14-year-old girl on March 9 last year at an address on the island.

It is alleged the 22-year-old induced the child to remove her clothing, fondled her private parts and induced her to fondle his genitals.

Remmington appeared at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week and pled guilty to the charge.

He was sentenced to a Community Payback Order with one years supervision and 200 hours unpaid work and banned from contacting anyone under the age of 16.
