Scottish Water has delivered pallets of bottled water to Laggan in the Highlands amid concerns of more severe weather.

The mains water supply to the Badenoch and Strathspey village was disrupted for a while last week by a power failure caused by the severe storm.

The Met Office has now issued yellow warnings for Tuesday and Wednesday for most of the UK.

Heavy snow and high winds have been forecast for Scotland.

Black ice made driving on roads and walking on pavements hazardous over large parts of the Highlands during Monday.

Ardross Primary in Alness and Newmore Primary in Invergordon were shut because of the icy conditions.

Mallaig Primary was also closed as a result of storm damage caused by last week's high winds.

Police said the unclassified Bealach na Ba road at Applecross was shut because of snow.

The A82 at Corran Ferry was reopened earlier after work to remove tonnes of unsafe rock was carried out over the weekend.
