Electricity is understood to have been restored to most homes affected by a large power cut south of Inverness.

More than 200 homes and businesses were left without power at around 8.40am after the outage in the Strathdearn area.

Properties in Moy, Lynebeg, Tomatin and upstream into the upper reaches of Strathdearn were among the locations affected. It is also believed to have affected Strathdearn Primary and nursery.
