Ski centres: 'Sorry folks. That's it.'

All five of Scotland's mountain snowsports centres have closed amid efforts to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The Lecht, Glenshee, Nevis Range, Cairngorm and Glencoe opened for their last day of the season on Sunday.

Snow conditions at the resorts had looked favourable for several weeks longer, but all the operators decided to close in the interests of protecting staff and visitors' health.

Bosses at Nevis Range said the virus was the biggest challenge the centre had faced in its 30-year history. They said they were "devastated" to be closing.

Glencoe said: "Sorry folks. That's it."
