In pictures: Snow causes disruption but finally brings winter to Scotland

  Herald Scotland 
Heavy snow and icy conditions caused chaos for drivers during Scotland's morning rush hour.  There were road closures and accidents all over the country as motorists struggled to cope with the weather.  And the heavy snow even forced the closure of one of Scotland's major motorways during one of the busiest periods of the morning.  The southbound carriageway of the M74 was closed for more than an hour at Lesmahagow, South Lanarkshire, due to the icy conditions of the road.  It was finally able to reopen just after 9am after gritters and snow ploughs were used to clear the way.  An accident involving multiple vehicles on the northbound carriageway of the M77 near Galston, East Ayrshire, added to the chaos of the worsening conditions.  Earlier in the morning, the A9 at Dunblane, Stirlingshire, was closed by police after a lorry jack knifed on the road near the Keir roundabout.  Restrictions were put in place on the Skye Bridge after the weather made driving conditions very dangerous.  Drivers crossing the Kessock Bridge near Inverness were also forced to deal with restrictions due to the adverse weather.  The Met Office have issued several yellow be aware warnings and expect more snow to fall across the country tomorrow.  ▶ Full story on eraldscotland.com
