Two roads are closed on the isles of Skye and Raasay due to landslips.

Kylerhea is cut off by the mud slide and the C1239 Lusa – Kylerhea Road is closed at around 3.7km from the Invergarry – Uig trunk road (A87).

The landslip covered the road with mud for about 100-120m.

Council staff are on site at Kylerhea and are working to clear the road tonight (Tuesday 10 December) and tomorrow.

A BT cable has been impacted by the mud slide and phones may be affected.

Highland Council say they are not aware of any impact on mobile phone coverage.

On the isle of Raasay, the 'bottom' road near the Raasay Outdoor Centre is also closed becausse 30m of parapet wall has collapsed. An alternative route is available via the 'top' road.

Council operatives will be unable to gain access to inspect the site and consider repairs until tomorrow (Wednesday 11th Dec).

Anyone who is cut off by the road closure at Kylerhea and requires emergency services should phone 999 for assistance.
