The Aberdeen to Inverness line was closed by a landslide between Elgin and Huntly, the line between Stonehaven and Montrose was flooded, a broken down freight train blocked the line at Linlithgow, and the East Coast Main Line remains closed between Edinburgh and Berwick.

By evening landslips at Carmont, Keith and Huntly were cleared. There had been flooding at Nairn.

All lines were open except the East Coast Main Line which was blocked at Cockburnspath by a 20x100ft landslip which may take until Monday to clear.
