Overnight snow forecast for Scotland's mountains

Snow has been forecast to fall later and overnight into Thursday on Scotland's mountains.

The Met Office said wintry showers were expected on summits in the east and west Cairngorms and also the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

Gale force winds have also been forecast for upland areas of Scotland over the next few days.

Last year, snow fell on the highest parts of the Cairngorms during the last days of August.

The Mountaineering Council of Scotland (MCofS) said snow fell where patches of snow from the winter have survived.

Small patches of snow from one of Scotland's hardest winters on record had remained in the range.
