|More wintry weather arrives for Kinlochbervie and the north of Scotland, with persistent showers of snow and hail throughout yesterday and today.|
The road from to Lairg and Inverness was described today as 'horrendous' with little indication of it having been gritted.
The problem with these roads is that even when gritted there is insufficient traffic to keep the way open.
Grit, at least, isn't something we have in short supply any more, after 1000 tons were delivered last week by the freighter Red Duchess.
High school pupils living in Durness, Achfary and Durness were sent home from school early yesterday amid concerns the roads might be impassable by normal closing time.
The weather forecasters were predicting perhaps as much as 30cm of snow will fall by Sunday teatime. We'll just have to wait and see.
