Five people have been injured following a two car collision that closed the A82 near the Glen Coe Mountain Resort today.
Road conditions have deteriorated with winds causing drifting snow and white out conditions and the snow gates at Glencoe have now been closed.
Inspector Jen Valentine explains: “We have closed the A82 whilst we deal with the collision and I would ask that drivers avoid the area at this time.
“For those currently at the Mountain Resort or at homes, hotels and restaurants in the area I would urge them to stay where they are and to stay safe and warm as there will potentially be a significant delay, due to the road conditions, in getting people out of the area.”
Valentine added: “We are working closely with Glencoe Mountain Resort, Traffic Scotland and Highland Council to ensure the dispersal of visitors to the Glencoe area today happens as quickly but also as safely as possible.”
The five people injured have been taken to hospital but their injuries are not thought to be life threatening.
