Engineers from Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) headed for the Bays of Harris this morning (Friday December 7th) to find the source of a power cut which has hit homes in the area.
 
147 properties in Lickisto, Finsbay, Manish and Rodel are without power, reporting the loss just after 7.30am this morning as winds built in strength.
 
SSEN said an engineering team were due at the site around 10am to identify the problem, and hoped to have power restored by 11.30am. They apologised to customers affected by the outage.
