A powercut is currently affecting 134 homes on Skye. 

A mobile generator is on its way from Inverness and is estimated to arrive by 7:30pm.

SSEN say the power is expected to be restored at 9pm today (Tuesday 12 November.)

The power went off at 1:05pm today and initially affected 414 customers on Raasay, Portree and other areas on Skye.

SSEN told Skye Times Online: "Our engineers are currently working to restore supplies, with the number of customers affected now down to 134, with all properties on Raasay restored.

"On the rare occasions there is a power cut, our priority is to restore supplies as safely and as quickly and as possible.

"Once everyone is back on we will carry out our investigations to establish the cause of the power cut."

A spokesperson from Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) continued:  “We would like to apologise to our customers, thank them for their patience and assure them that our engineers are doing everything they can to restore supplies as safely and as quickly as possible.”
