Scots have been waking up to wintry scenes this morning after a huge snowfall hit parts of the country.
Temperatures dropped overnight causing flurries across the Highlands, Perthshire and Aberdeenshire with routes including the A9 Perth to Inverness road affected.

Met Office yellow warnings for snow will remain in place until 1pm across Tayside and Grampian, however the white stuff did not land as far east as Dundee.
A further warning of ice will be in force from 6pm tonight until 10am on Friday – and forecasters say more snow is likely overnight.
A Met Office statement said: “Expect some icy patches to form on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths on Thursday evening and overnight into Friday. There is a risk of slippery surfaces and difficult driving conditions.
“Snow showers are expected, mainly over higher ground in the north and west of Scotland, with longer journey times possible.”
Snow falling over parts of Scotland this morning. Remember to help out your wildlife by leaving out fat balls, and make sure there is fresh and clean water for them (and that it isn't frozen over!) ❄️☃️pic.twitter.com/ZA0ovpty3d
