The iconic RAF Red Arrows are set to fly over the west coast of Scotland this afternoon - with some Argyll residents set to get a glimpse. 

The display team are flying back south after spending time in the north of Scotland, and will fly over parts of Argyll, Arran and Ayrshire on their way home on Thursday, February 22.

The planes are expected over Lochgilphead at 3.52pm before heading across to Blackwaterfoot on Arran around five minutes later.

The aircraft should then pass over parts of South Ayrshire on their way to the Penrith area before heading further south.

Here's when to expect them and where on their journey from RAF Lossiemouth to their home base at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire...
