Residents in the Western Isles have been urged to conserve water as the area records one of its driest periods of weather.
Just 4% of normal June rainfall has been recorded in the Western Isles while areas of Scotland have faced flash floods.
The water warning from utility company Scottish Water is in stark contrast with the torrential rain endured across Scotland.
Scottish Water has said that reservoirs levels are dropping.
The dry weather has resulted in a very large number of wild fires in many places across the islands.
There were four large blazes which swept through the tinder-dry historic Lews Castle Grounds in Stornoway.
Amateur footballers and golfers have also been affected with firefighters even called in to attempted to soften pitches with water.
According to the Met Office, the Outer Hebrides has received only 14.5mm of rain from the first 24 days of this month compared to the 78.4mm usually expected for the whole of June.
The Met Office also says that just 27.8mm of rain had fallen in the Ross and Cromarty area, about a third of the normal June total.
Other parts of Scotland have seen events cancelled due to flooding and bad weather.
On Wednesday commuters in the central belt experienced severe delays and service cancellations after heavy rain caused flooding on major roads in Edinburgh and Glasgow and brought some train lines to a standstill.
The Met Office also issued an amber warning across much of central Scotland on Thursday including Fife, the Lothians and Borders, telling the public to be aware of heavy downpours and resulting surface flooding.
