DRIFTING snow was continuing to cause major disruption to Highland railway lines on Tuesday – despite the arrival of milder air across the region.

ScotRail is expecting services to be disrupted all day on parts of the Far North Line and the Inverness-Aberdeen route.

A spokesman said: "Snow drifts are still causing problems in the north of the country – we can't run trains between Ardgay and Georgemas Junction, nor between Inverurie and Keith right now.

"You can use valid rail tickets/Smartcards on Stagecoach buses between Aberdeen, Inverness and Wick."

They added: "We are working hard to resolve these problems but disruption on some routes will continue until faults are fixed and the weather improves. We're sorry for the inconvenience this has caused and are committed to restoring services as quickly as we can for our passenger and freight customers."
