Hundreds of residents experienced a power outage today as high winds battered the north.
Almost 190 properties on the Black Isle were left in the dark after two faults were reported on the electrical grid.
Around 184 properties in Tore, Knockbain, Munlochy and Newton of Ferintosh – bearing the postcodes IV6 and IV8 – reported a loss of power shortly after 6.30am after a tree came down in high winds.
Less than 90 minutes later, four properties in the IV7 region near Resolis also suffered a power cut due to a fault on the line.
Engineers from Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) were sent to the affected areas before successfully restoring the power around 9am.
Households in the IV2 area, east of Inverness also reported faults to the grid today after a wire came down in the area.
Residents in Culloden, Balloch and Ardersier experienced an outage at 10.30am. The power was restored a short time later.
Meanwhile, 825 customers in Sutherland came off supply just 60 minutes later due to an unidentified fault.
A total of 714 households in the IV24 postcode area of Ardgay were reconnected in just three minutes due to the automatic switching of the network, with the remaining properties reconnected shortly after noon.
A SSEN spokeswoman said: “SSEN would like to apologise to any customers affected by power cuts today and to assure them that we are working as quickly and safely as possible to keep everyone on supply.”
