Roadworks have started at three locations on the A87 on Skye with more than £790,000 of surfacing improvements being carried out over four weeks.

Resurfacing by trunk roads operator BEAR Scotland will take place between Earlish to Uig at Hinnisdale and at Torra Michaig near Sconser.

The overnight improvements were due to begin last Thursday and will take place Monday nights to Friday nights between 7pm and 5am.

Due to the narrow width of the carriageway, a road closure will be in place each night to keep road workers safe.

As there is no suitable diversion for all trunk road traffic, amnesty periods will be used to allow traffic to be escorted through the work site when it is safe to do so.

Works will begin first at Earlish to Uig, before moving on to Hinnisdale and finishing at Torra Michaig.

Surfacing improvements north of Kensaleyre and north of Inverinate were completed earlier this year.
