Across the huge area of Western Isles and Skye, more than 20,000 properties had to restore their power supply following the major landslip.

Southern and Scottish Electricity Networks also established aid facilities for the affected residents due to the power cut, along with the availability of food and drinks in Uig in Skye and Portree.
