Snow has continued to fall over large parts of Scotland.

The white stuff has been falling over the Highlands, parts of Moray, Perthshire, Tayside and central Scotland.

Some dramatic images have been captured by the Sportscotland Avalanche Information Service (SAIS).

SAIS teams report on the potential risk of avalanches in six mountain areas - Glencoe, Lochaber, Creag Meagaidh, Northern Cairngorms, Southern Cairngorms and Torridon.

The service, which is used by hillwalkers and climbers, runs between December and early April.

Several of the team members make their daily checks accompanied by their hardy dogs. This one chills out during a trip into the Southern Cairngorms.

Snow has also fallen over central Scotland where a small number of schools have been closed.

And to even greater depths at Dalwhinnie in the Highlands.

A pet rabbit called Bugs has been eating the carrot noses on snowmen built in a garden in Inverness in the Highlands where almost 100 schools are shut and snow has affected travel on some roads.
