The Highland Council's daily road report said that routes around the outskirts of Thurso are affected by drifting snow and are currently being treated.

The report posted at 8.53am said: "Main roads fairly good, bits drifting on Thurso to Shebster at Gateway's, on side roads Dorrey area and Skaill and top Durran stretches of drifting, 2ft/3ft about, covering snow on most side routes, treatment ongoing on routes, footpaths also in towns and rural areas."

In Sutherland at 8.47am the council reported that high level routes are affected by drifting snow. The A897 and A894 are currently closed. Some local central side roads also affected by drifting snow. Most other routes still have remnants of hard packed snow and icy patches. All routes currently being treated in order of priority.
