The scenic Bealach na Ba hill road on the North Coast 500 was closed for several hours today after a lorry got stuck.
The incident was first reported to police around 12.45pm with a road closure put in place to allow recovery.
The route was cleared at 5.12pm allowing traffic to freely pass.
A couple who had been travelling behind the lorry in their motorhome said they “felt sorry for the driver who must have been shaking as the front of the lorry was touching the safety barrier”.
The road that spans from Tornapress near Kishorn to Applecross is visited by thousands each year as they navigate their way around the famed North Coast 500 route.
A diversion route via the coast road had been put in place, consisting of a drive just shy of 32 miles.
A police spokesman has said that no injuries were sustained.
