Sleet, snow and high winds have been causing problems on roads in parts of Scotland.

The main areas affected have been the Highlands, central Highlands and parts of the north east.

Conditions have been bad on the higher parts of the A9 and the snow gates have been closed on the A82 south of Glencoe and on the A93.

Northern Constabulary said many routes across the Highlands were affected by snow.

An early casualty of the weather was the scheduled football match between Ross County and Partick Thistle, which was postponed because of snow.

The game between Inverness and St Johnstone has also been called off.

The Met Office has issued an amber warning over wind conditions forecast much of Scotland for Tuesday.

It said the windiest conditions are likely to be in the morning, although will persist into the afternoon in the north-east of Scotland.

Forecasters also said heavy rain would affect many regions, leading to localised flooding, with further snow in northern Scotland.
