Firefighters remain at the scene of a major blaze in the centre of Inverness two days on.
A large part of the city centre remains closed to vehicles as works get underway to make the burnt out M&Co building on Academy Street safe.
But it was stressed today that all streets including Queensgate and Strothers Lane are open apart from areas inside an exclusion zone immediately round the burned building.
Emergency crews are continuing to monitor the building for fresh flare-ups.
The fire was initially reported at around 10.30pm on Wednesday, with nearly 50 firefighters at the scene at the height of the fire.
An initial structural assessment of the building has concluded that scaffolding will need to be put up to make the building, which is one of the oldest in Inverness, safe.
Drivers approaching the city centre from Millburn Road or Crown Road will have to make to find another way across the town.
Buses, delivery vehicles and taxis will be allowed to enter Union Street before moving on to Church Street, down Fraser Street and on to Bank Street.
Traffic approaching Academy Street from the Chapel Street end will be directed to turn right on to Friars Lane to reach Church Street then left on to Post Office Lane and then left again on to Academy Street.
