Staff are still expected to attend "when they deem it safe to do so".

All bus services on the islands have been cancelled.

Pictures on social media showed water lapping at the door of The Crannog restaurant, which is on the pier in Fort William, as water levels rose.

The Met Office also said some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely. 

A number of Caledonian MacBrayne ferry services are affected, with some cancelled due and others disrupted. Northlink Ferries also warned passengers there could be disruption on services to Orkney and Shetland.

On the railways services between Ayr and Kilwinning were disrupted due to overhead line damage.

The Met Office warning, which covers the Highlands, Western Isles and Argyll and Bute, is valid until midnight.

It states: "The very strong south-westerly winds will continue at times through Tuesday with gusts of 60-70 mph.

"Although winds are generally less strong than during Monday, some further disruption is likely - especially around coasts.

"Although the frequency and strength of gusts will probably diminish through Tuesday afternoon and evening, some further strengthening is possible again later."

A separate yellow warning of snow and ice for Perth and Kinross, Stirling, Aberdeenshire, Moray, the Highlands and Islands and Argyll and Bute is valid until 1pm.
