Weather Reports

The Northern Constabulary have announced that, due to severe weather, the B9007 from Ferness to Carrbridge is closed. Potentially making it difficult to find access to your Coylumbridge hotel, it is therefore advised that tourists think carefully before making any concrete plans of visiting the area.

Whilst all the other routes in Stratspey and Badenoch are passable and open, the B9007 has been forced to close at the snow gates. Other information states that both the A95 from Grantown to Cromdale road and the A939 from Grantown to Ferness have lying snow, whilst both the B970 from Grantown to Coylumbridge, the A9 Causeway Mire, and many other side roads in the general area are affected by covering of snow. Both the Glencoe and Fort William areas have no snow but might be icy so they are generally safe to travel around as long as precautions are kept. Advice has suggested that those who are travelling around should leave extra time to ensure that their journey can be made on time, whilst also ensuring that their vehicles are equipped well enough to handle the changeable weather this winter.

All the updated information on road conditions in not only the Highlands but for the rest of Scotland can be found on the Traffic Scotland website, www.trafficscotland.org. There are many Scottish highland hotels in the area, but again, it is strongly warned that if you are thinking of visiting the area in the next few months, that you should carefully think about it and prepare for the worse as Scotland has not seen severe storms such as these in decades. Whilst we would all love a unique and exciting Christmas, we will all also want inevitably a safe one so be sure to do your research and check on the last weather reports before heading off to the Scottish Highlands.
