Highlands & Islands

Power restored to Western Isles and west Highlands

Electricity supplies have been restored to about 18,000 properties in the Western Isles and the west Highlands and about 300 on Skye.

A lightning strike was the cause of the largest of Monday morning's two outages.

A separate fault affected supplies to properties in the Dunvegan and Struan areas of Skye.

SSE said its engineers had restored supplies to all the affected properties.
