Lochcarron to Kyle road closed

A massive rockfall has caused the closure of the A890 between Lochcarron and Kyle of Lochalsh. Highland Council says that the road will remain closed on for the rest of Friday 23 December and is likely to be closed on Christmas Eve. The Council says every effort will be made to have the route open on Christmas Day. The nearby railway line is unaffected.

More than 100 tonnes of rock came loose from the hillside above the road and has blocked the road near the tunnel opposite Lochcarron. This section of road has suffered from numerous landslips and major work to stablise the rockface was carried out a few year ago.
