Scotland is being battered by snow, wind, and sub-zero temperatures as the so-called ‘beast from the east’ brings cold air to most of the country, causing havoc to travel plans and schools.
Most of Scotland’s council areas have now advised parents that their schools, including primary, secondary, and specialist are all closed for the day, as well as nurseries.
While some council areas have closed all of their schools, a number of other local authorities have advised that either all of their schools are open, or that closures are limited.
