Cauldeen Primary (10 am), Kinmylies Primary, St Joseph’s Primary and Nursery and Dochgarroch Primary (all one hour late) have both put in place late opening plans.

Inverness Royal Academy, Culloden Academy, Millburn Academy and Inverness High School all confirmed they would be open as normal, as did Glen Urquhart High School.

Charleston Academy will also re-open but with a delayed 9.30 am start for classes.

The school is also cancelling scheduled prelim exams for today.

Charleston headmaster Michael Aitchison told parents and pupils: “Charleston Academy will be open to all pupils. We will delay the opening of the school until 9:30 am for pupils who walk to school.

“Buses are only running on the main roads. For those of you who live in rural areas it may be that your bus is not running.

“Please wait 15-20 minutes for the bus and then return home. Only travel if it is safe to do so.

“Biology prelim exams scheduled for today are cancelled and will be rescheduled.”

A spokesman for local bus operator Stagecoach said: “All town buses have departed from the Inverness depot this morning.

“There are currently minor delays reported across the network, however.”
