A man has been taken to hospital after a three-vehicle crash that closed a major road on Skye for more than two hours.
Emergency services were called to the scene, at Varragill Bridge on the A87 between Kyle of Lochalsh and Uig, at around 11.25am.
Two ambulance crews attended and one man was transferred to the island’s Broadford Hospital.
All traffic except HGVs were diverted via the B883 while emergency teams remain at the incident, but the section of the A87 has now reopened.
