Expect delays and a bumpy ride on a stretch of the A9 leading into Thurso.

Roadworks got under way on Sunday as part of a £405,000 resurfacing project covering more than a kilometre, from south of the town's cemetery to the bridge at Bridgend filling station, and are expected to continue for 10 nights.

The work, intended to improve the quality and safety of the road, is being carried out by BEAR Scotland and takes place between 8pm and 7am each night until completion on Friday, October 23.

Drivers are advised to be aware of ramps and uneven road surfaces that need to be negotiated at low speed to avoid potential damage to vehicles.

A traffic management system may also lead to slight delays with temporary traffic lights in operation along with a 10mph convoy system.

Real-time journey planning information can be obtained by visiting www.trafficscotland.org or go to Twitter at @trafficscotland or the new mobile site my.trafficscotland.org
