The railway between Inverness and Aviemore which had been closed due to a landslip has reopened.

Heavy rain last Friday morning caused an 18 metre (60ft) section of the railway lineside to give way.

Train services had been suspended and replacement transport was provided while 2,000 tonnes of rock were installed.

First ScotRail said the line had reopened at Carrbridge at 19:30 and services were now running normally.
