A FLOOD alert remained in place for Easter Ross and the Great Glen on Monday morning, following yesterday's torrential rains across much of the Highlands.
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency issued the alert on Sunday and, although it remained in place at 8.30am on Monday, the body expects conditions to improve as the day progresses.
A spokesman said: "River levels remain high and there is the potential for some ongoing disruption due to surface water flooding across the area. The situation is expected to improve into Monday.
"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.

Separate flood alerts for Skye & Lochaber, and Caithness & Sutherland, were also in force at 8.30am on Monday.
Higher 'flood warning' alerts for Strathglass, Glen Nevis, and the River Oykel are no longer in force.
