Remnants of Hurricane Bertha hits Kingussie: blocking the Caledonian Sleeper
Sand, silt and debris brought down by the River Gynack across the Inverness to Perth

The rampaging River Gynack
Heavy rain caused by the tail-end of Hurricane Bertha turned the River Gynack that runs through Kingussie into a raging torrent of water carrying silt and trees onto nearby streets and the Perth to Inverness railway line blocking the overnight Caledonian Sleeper at the station. The plan is to bus passengers this evening from Inverness and Aviemore to Kingussie from where the sleeper will head southwards to London Euston overnight.
Welcome to Kingussie's famous beach!
