FLOOD alerts have been issued across much of the Highlands, amid warnings to residents and motorists of persistent rain over the next 24 hours.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) issued the warnings amid forecasts of heavy rain “from Tuesday afternoon and through Wednesday”.

The warning covers surface water, river levels and coastal communities.

Separate alerts have been issued for Easter Ross and the Great Glen, the Findhorn, Nairn, Moray and Strathspey catchment, and for Caithness and Sutherland.

“Localised flooding of land and roads and isolated property flooding is possible from rivers and surface water,” said a spokesman.

“Large waves may affect the area from Tuesday evening and on Wednesday. Isolated flooding of low lying land and roads is possible from wave overtopping around times of high tide.

“Remain vigilant and remember, it is your responsibility to take actions which help protect yourself and your property.

“Advice and information is also available through Floodline on 0345 9881188. This flood alert is now in force until further notice.”
