Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch MSP Kate Forbes hailed the news – which is on top of the recent £4 million which Transport Scotland released to address urgent maintenance issues on trunk roads such as the A82 and A87.
The Scottish Government's Finance Secretary Derek Mackay said that the distribution of the new additional £10 million funding will be agreed with COSLA.
Kate Forbes MSP said: "Over the last few months, the roads in the Highlands have become progressively worse.
"I am pleased that, on top of the extra £4 million for trunk roads like the A82 and A87, Highland Council will also have a share of the £10 million to do up Council-managed roads.
"I hope that Highland Council spends this money on the areas that need it the most.
"Highland Council have pleaded budget constraints as an excuse for the poor state of the roads, but somethings don't add up.
"Our roads are in a very poor state, despite a fair funding settlement."
