Scottish Coastal Road Fractured by Storm Brendan

Residents in northwest Scotland surveyed damage on Tuesday, January 14, after Storm Brendan battered coastal communities.

Heavy rain drenched Ireland’s west coast and parts of Great Britain on Monday, as strong winds and large swells pummeled the coast. The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) said high tide and surges from Storm Brendan were still being observed across Scotland on Tuesday.

This video shows damage to a road in Applecross, a village within Highland, Scotland. The Wester Ross area, which includes Applecross, was under a flood alert on Tuesday as the SEPA warned of “significant coastal flooding.”

“Took a drive round the bay this morning to see what damage was done by Storm Brendan last night,” Applecross Walled Garden, which shared the footage, said on Instagram. Credit: Applecross Walled Garden via Storyful
