An earthquake has been recorded in the west of Scotland

A small earthquake has hit the west of Scotland, the British Geological Survey said.

The quake measured 3.5 on the Richter scale and was recorded in Glenuig, west of Fort William, at 6.02am on Sunday.

It was felt in Skye, Mull, Inverness and Oban and is the largest earthquake recorded in the area since January 2008, when a tremor of the same magnitude was recorded near Glenfinnan.

The survey said such an earthquake can be felt as far as 120 km away.

One person reported being awoken by “noise and vibration” during the quake.
