The aftermath of Storm Frank continues to feature prominently on many of Scotland's front pages.

The Scotsman reports that thousands of Scots face a miserable start to the New Year as they pick up the pieces after devastating floods.

The Scottish Daily Mail says a "devastated" Prince Charles visited families whose homes were engulfed when the fiercest storm in a generation flooded a village near his Scottish estate.

The Scottish Sun estimates that Scotland's bill for festive weather carnage could hit £1bn, following Storm Frank.

And Scots left reeling by the storm have been told to prepare for a big freeze, according to the Scottish Daily Express.

Meanwhile, the Herald writes that charities have urged ministers to reconsider controversial legislation on forced marriage as figures suggest it has resulted in fewer victims coming forward for help.

The Daily Record leads with the arrest of a man in connection with the death of 25-year-old Katy Rourke at a flat in Glasgow.
