Heavy snow has forced the closure of the A9 south of Inverness

The Inverness to Perth road is also closed to southbound traffic between Tomatin and the Slochd Summit due to heavy snowfall.

Traffic Scotland has said that ploughs are working on the route.

There is also a separate closure to allow recovery of a tanker which slid off the trunk road yesterday.

Police and recovery services are in attendance at the moment at Carrbridge.

Southbound vehicles are asked to take the A938 via Carrbridge.

Northbound users are advised to wait on the A9 whilst recovery takes place to avoid congestion in Carrbridge.

North of Inverness, motorists are being advised to be cautious on the Dornoch Bridge which is being affected by high winds.

The road was blocked for a spell in the morning at Daviot after HGVs got stuck in the snow going uphill.
