A force spokeswoman said this morning that the route is “passable with care”, however, motorists are urged to drive to the road conditions.

Weather warnings still in place

A yellow weather warning for snow and ice remains in place today for eastern parts of the country and will remain in place until 12noon on Saturday.

The alerts remain in place after temperatures dipped to -23C in Braemar at 8.13am yesterday – the lowest in Scotland since 1995.

A yellow warning of snow and ice in the west is due to come into force tonight and last until 11.59pm on Saturday.

Road maintenance teams are again out treating priority routes to make travel possible.

Routes leading to vaccination centres have been prioritised to ensure as minimal disruption as possible is experienced by those departing to get jabs.


Schools are currently only open to the children of key workers and vulnerable children, however, wintry conditions have forced some to close.
