Trains in and out of Oban are cancelled for the rest of the day after flooding washed away sections of track between Crianlarich and Arrochar.

Replacement buses are being used to allow customers to complete their journeys.

A ScotRail spokesperson said: ‘Engineers are working as quickly as possible to repair sections of the track which have been damaged due to flooding. We’ve arranged replacement buses to keep customers moving, but this will mean longer journey times through the affected area.’
