Emergency services dealt with several road traffic accidents this morning, including a jack-knifed lorry, as a blanket of snow hit the north.
The lorry incident happened at 7am near the treacherous Berriedale Braes section of the A9 but the road is now passable.
A car and lorry also collided on the new stretch of dual carriageway south of Aviemore leaving the road partially blocked on the south-bound carriage.

BEAR Scotland has been asked to attend the incident to clear the road of debris from the crash.
Traffic Scotland reported the road is blocked in both directions on the A95 near Dulnain Bridge where all lanes restricted due to road traffic incident.
BEAR Scotland announced on social media: “All our routes have been treated. However we have had some snow showers on our most northern routes. These are being patrolled by our front line spreaders and our usual patrol drivers.”
The RAC has already issued a warning to drivers to be extra cautious after the Met Office confirmed there would be overnight lasting into Thursday.
