Weather warnings are in place for Oban on Friday and Saturday.

The Met Office is forecasting heavy rain and strong winds between 5am and midnight on Friday with 50mph gusts, potentially causing some disruption.

The yellow warning for wind  indicates a small chance of injuries and danger to life from flying debris. Road, rail, air and ferry services may also be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations.

People are also being told to be aware of large waves being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.

Winds will drop on Saturday but persistent rain brings a yellow weather warning for the risk of more flooding. There is a chance of power cuts to homes, driving could be difficult and some roads could be closed, cutting off some communities.
