An earthquake that “sounded like an explosion” was felt on the Isle of Skye.
The British Geological Survey detected a 2.6 magnitude quake at 5.41pm on Friday.
The tremor was recorded around 12km south-east of Broadford.
A small number of reports were also made by residents in Glenelg and Ratagan in the Lochalsh area.
The reports described the quake as a “weak shaking” and said it “sounded like an explosion”.
The intensity was changed from a two on the European Macroseismic Scale, which is scarcely felt, to a three, which is weak but felt by a few people.
The depth of the tremor was recorded at 8km.
While not a regular occurrence, earthquakes are not uncommon in parts of the Highlands and Islands.
Two earthquakes were felt minutes apart in Glencoe in November.
