The Ness Islands in Inverness have been closed this morning until further notice.
Highland Council said the closure is for public safety due to flooding, heavy rain and further rising water heights anticipated with the spring tides.
Pedestrians and cyclists are asked to heed closure signs that have been erected for their own safety and are advised to use the nearest alternative route via the Infirmary Bridge until further notice.
Staff are monitoring the situation and will reopen the Islands again when it is safe to do so, the council said.
