Christmas in the Highlands was blighted by flooding on roads across the region.
This caused delays, making journey times considerably longer than normal.
Fort William was particularly badly hit, with flooding at the new crossing outside M&S on Christmas Eve.
Ditches were also overflowing between the town and Spean Bridge, with lots of stones and gravel spilling onto the road with the water.
Motorists reported standing water on roads all the way from Glasgow to Inverness.
There was deep water on the A85 Oban to Perth road at Pass of Brander and the Lochavullin car park was filling up.
The Met Office had a yellow warning for rain in place. Forecasters recorded 67.2mm of rainfall at Achnagart, 17.6mm at Fort William, 13mm at Inverness and 43.6mm at Kinlochewe.
A Sepa flood warning was in place for Strath Oykel, with flood alerts for Argyll and Bute, Easter Ross and the Great Glen, Skye and Lochaber, Wester Ross, Caithness and Sutherland.
Most people across the country woke to a mild Christmas morning yesterday, with virtually no one enjoying a white Christmas.
Forecasters said the chances of snow flurries were slim, except high in the Scottish hills and in parts of southern Aberdeenshire.
Most of the UK saw temperatures reach double figures on Christmas Day, with the mercury peaking at 13C in some places.
It will be similar weather today, while forecaster Filotas Paschos said: “In general on Wednesday and Thursday it seems we are going to have a north wind bringing in wintry showers from the north across the Northern Isles, Caithness and Sutherland and the Moray Firth.
“Wednesday and Thursday will be fairly breezy from northern mainland across the Northern Isles. Later on Thursday the wind will begin to ease from the west.
“Friday is going to start fairly dry with some showers across western parts of Scotland. From afternoon we expect a band of rain to cross the country from west to east, with some snow falling on the hilltops.”
