DRAMATIC footage of waterfalls being blown upwards by winds of up to 80mph has been captured on the Isle of Mull.

The video was taken by Reuben O’Connell, who works for Isle of Mull Cottages during his visit to one of the company’s buildings.

The footage was taken from the southern end of the Isle of Mull, with the camera looking across to Loch Scridain, Ardmeanach and ‘The Wilderness’.

Since filming it yesterday afternoon, the video has had 994,000 views on the company’s Facebook page and has been shared by users of the social media site nearly 20,000 times.

The Isle of Mull, in Argyll and Bute, routinely sees strong winds and rainy conditions due to its climate. It is the second-largest isle in the Outer Hebrides after Skye.

Storm Henry is the most recent storm to assault communities in Scotland, following the efforts of Storm Frank and Gertrude over the last few weeks.

The 35-year-old said that it was “not unusual” to see this kind of weather in the area.
