Women who allegedly suffered sexual and physical abuse at a residential school linked to predators from the Scottish legal and political establishment are being urged to give evidence by a national inquiry.

Between 1960 and 1993 thousands of “deprived girls” from Glasgow housing estates were sent on summer breaks to Fornethy House in the idyllic Angus countryside, north of Dundee.

Last week a Sunday Times investigation published accounts from women who alleged they were molested at the mansion by a group of “well-spoken men”, including Sir Nicholas Fairbairn QC, who was appointed as solicitor-general for Scotland by Margaret Thatcher, and Robert Henderson QC, his equally disgraced friend and confidant.
