Following the rare red warning of wind across the east of Scotland, here are some pictures showing the damage and devastation caused by Storm Arwen.
From fallen trees to trampolines and barns on train tracks, Storm Arwen created damage across Scotland which resulted in an outage of power supplies and major disruption to travel which is still continuing through this weekend.
As a result, councils and road teams are working across Scotland to help clear trees and other debris which landed on roads after winds reached over 80mph in many areas.
Here are a few pictures which show the effect the winter storm had on Scotland.
