The information provided is a summary of reports from Highland Council's operational staff and is intended to give a general indication of typical conditions in each area at a point in time. It is not intended to imply that any individual route is entirely snow and ice free and drivers must be aware that conditions can change rapidly and make their own assessment of conditions for travelling.

The UK Met Office currently has a yellow warning for snow and ice across large parts of the Highlands today. An amber warning for snow covering Kingussie and Aviemore is also in place. Find out more about warnings and advice here https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/
