High routes in Sutherland were affected with hard-packed ice and snow this morning, Highland Council teams reported.

They said that there was frozen snow and ice throughout the area, and a fresh light cover of snow on some higher routes.

In Caithness, there was a dusting of snow on high routes, while there was a mixture of "frosts and sparkling roads" on lower routes.

All surfaces were being treated by the council's priority gritting list.

Roads in Ross-shire were in mixed conditions, with some sparkle and slippery surfaces.

Drivers are warned that individual roads may differ from these conditions and are urged to make their own assessment of conditions for travelling.

The Met Office currently has a yellow warning for ice across large parts of the Highlands.
