A woman has admitted growing cannabis plants at her North-east home.
Jenna Duncan, 29, appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court where she admitted producing cannabis at an address in Huntly on May 13 last year.
The court heard that police attended her home and during a search eight plants were found at her home.
It was said that the plants could have been worth between £2,000-£7,000, based on them reaching full maturity.
Duncan also had equipment such as lighting units and extractor fans.
Fiscal Depute Laura Begg told the court that, when spoken to by police, Duncan said that she had been growing the plants for her own personal use.
Sheriff Alison Stirling told Duncan that a “lot of planning” had gone into the offence and that she would defer sentence for a background report.
Duncan, whose address was given in court papers as 1 Cairncrankie Cottages, Portsoy, will return to court at a later date to be sentenced.
