Motorists are facing severe delays after a landslip closed a main road in Argyll and Bute.
The A83 Rest and Be Thankful was closed in both directions just after 4pm on Wednesday after the landslip near Inveraray.
Traffic Scotland advised drivers to expect "longer than usual" journey times.
A 58-mile detour via Tyndrum and Dalmally is in place while engineers begin work on clearing the landslip.
It was later confirmed that the road would be closed until Thursday at the earliest.
Deputy Leader of Argyll and Bute Council, John Semple said, "Argyll and Bute is still open for business. However drivers must expect some delays on the detour. I appreciate it is inconvenient and I would ask drivers to take extra care given the weather conditions. Transport Scotland is working hard to open the A83 as soon as possible."
The incident marks the fifth time the pass at Rest and Be Thankful has been closed because of landslides in the past five years, and locals have called for action to prevent further disruption.
In June, the road was closed when heavy rain brought a high risk of a landslip. It also shut in February and a landslide in December saw the route blocked for a week.
Transport Minister Keith Brown has announced £1m of funding in an attempt to prevent future incidents.
