The partial re-opening of a stretch of Highland road which was shut following a landslide has been delayed.

Highland Council said the re-opening of the A890 in Wester Ross, which has been shut since 22 December, had been put back to Monday 27 February.

The council thanked local communities for their "patience and understanding in very trying times".

A long-term solution to problems affecting the A890 could cost between £40m and 70m.

They include a road bridge across the Strome Narrows, or constructing a new bypass to replace the existing one.
