A remote farm in the Scottish Borders is set to become one of the world's leading falcon breeding and training centres for the Qatar royal family.
The development plans have been approved for the new facility at Weensmuir Farm, near Bonchester Bridge in Roxburghshire.
Sheikh Ali Bin Abdulla Athani is hoping to join his family in visiting the centre around four times a year, to purchase birds of prey.
