Hundreds of people were without electricity in villages south of Inverness on Thursday morning after a power cut.
Moy, Lynebeg, Tomatin and an area stretching upstream into the upper reaches of Strathdearn were among the locations affected.
Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) confirmed that the outage, which was reported at 8.41am, affected 210 customers. Strathdearn Primary School and nursery was also closed on Thursday.
Engineers were on-site by 9am and, at the time of writing, SSEN said it hoped to restore power by midday.
"We're sorry for the loss of supply," said SSEN. "Our engineers are on site working hard to get the power back on as quickly as they can.
