Two earthquakes have been felt in Glen Coe.
The two small tremors were reported on Wednesday evening by locals.
People who live in and around the village of Ballachulish told of hearing a deep rumbling sound, that “sounded like really loud thunder.”
British Geological Survey, which records seismic activity, detected a magnitude 1.9 earthquake at 17:40 and a magnitude 1.7 quake six minutes later.
BGS has received several macroseismic reports from both these events being felt in Ballachulish and North Ballachulish, described as, "a very deep, sudden rumble" and "sounded like really loud thunder".
