MORAY and the north of Scotland woke up to damage and disruption after a night of gale-force winds and heavy rain with Storm Arwen.
Fallen trees blocked numerous roads across the area.
Buckie High School sustained damage due to the high winds.
A spokesperson for Moray Council said: “Buckie High has experienced some damage to its roof due to high winds but it is not structural. The affected area has been cordoned off, and once the weather improves we will be able to assess the extent of the damage.”
In Lossiemouth, a small boat had sunk in the harbour, a caravan was overturned at Silver Sands, the outdoor seating area at the Brander Arms pub was flattened, garden fences blown down and fallen trees saw a footpath cordoned off.
Brander Arms landlords Alan and Lynn Mitchell could only watch on helpless as their newly festive-decorated beer garden was flattened by the storm. The couple closed the pub on Friday night due to the danger.
Many areas were without power for much of the night.
Across the area fallen trees caused hazardous driving conditions on the roads overnight and in the early hours of Saturday.
The storm has eased overnight but the wind remains strong today.
