A newly built bridge on the Road to the Isles has opened to traffic.
Work has been ongoing on Arieniskill Bridge on the A830 Fort William to Mallaig road for the last seven months.
The new bridge follows on from the completion of Ranochan Bridge in December, making Arieniskill the fifth structure to be rebuilt on the route in the past three years..
Approximately seven miles west of Glenfinnan, the new Arieniskill Bridge has been constructed with stone from the old bridge incorporated into the new design to ensure the structure was in keeping with its scenic surroundings.
A temporary bridge was constructed as a diversion for motorists while the old bridge was demolished and replaced
Transport Minister Humza Yousaf said: “This is the fifth structure to be replaced in this ambitious £10million project and it is good to see it progressing well.
“The team will now be moving onto the next stage and the same techniques will help ensure that the disruption to road users is kept to a minimum.
“I would like to thank people for their patience when the work is being carried out and hope that they agree the results are worthwhile.”
Eddie Ross, Bear Scotland’s north west representative added: “In keeping with the other four new structures on the route, Arieniskill Bridge was built using stone recycled from the old bridge to help it blend in with the scenic Highland surroundings on the route.
“We hope the local community will be pleased with the new bridge at Arieniskill, and look forward to commencing works at Criche Bridge in the summer.”
Minor works will continue for a few weeks beyond the initial opening with a lane closure in place to allow removal of the temporary bridge and associated road diversion next to the new structure.
