Strong winds could bring disruption to the Highlands during Wednesday.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for winds for the north and west areas of the region from 7am until 7pm.

A band of rain is also forecast to sweep in from the north-west.

The latest weather warning comes in the wake of the recent Storms Isha and Jocelyn which brought disruption to the Highlands.

Both storms left thousands of homes without electricity power.

They also impacted on road and rail travel across the region due to flooding and fallen trees and debris.

A yellow weather warning indicates a slight chance of some damage to buildings, power cuts and injuries and danger to life from flying debris

There is a small chance of longer journey times or cancellations as road, air and ferry services are affected and that some roads and bridges could close.
