Harry Potter author JK Rowling is to build her own "Hagrid Hut" in the grounds of her Scottish estate.
The writer plans to install the stone-built summerhouse, bearing a striking resemblance to the home of one of her best-loved characters, the game-keeper Hagrid, on the edge of the Killiechassie Estate, near Aberfeldy in Perthshire.
Like the fictional home of Hagrid - the ground-keeper of Hogwarts, played in the Harry Potter films by Robbie Coltrane - the proposed hut will be built on the edge of a forest of the 162-acre estate.
Architectural plan of the hut
It will be a circular structure, open to the front, with a stone bench and slate roof.
A council report states that the condition of the application's approval is that no trees must be damaged or cut down during the construction.
Killiechassie House, on the banks of the River Tay is just a few miles from Castle Menzies, which has been likened to Hogwarts, the fictional school attended by Harry Potter.
The 19th century estate has its own small loch, said to contain a murderous water sprite.
