Scotland’s weather: Drivers rescued after 20 vehicles are stranded in two-metre snow drifts
Highland Council said emergency services have been assisting the rescue operation after vehicles became trapped on the A835 between Ullapool and Garve.
It said around 20 vehicles were stranded in snow at Loch Droma.
Road management organisation Bear Scotland said the vehicles had become stranded in two-metre snow drifts.
Network Rail said services have been disrupted on the Highland Mainline despite plough trains being used to clear snow.
It comes as a Met Office amber weather warning for snow is in place across large parts of Scotland until 6am on Saturday.
Elsewhere, Bear Scotland said the A85 is closed west of Methven in Perth and Kinross due to flooding caused by surface water and all vehicles except HGVs and buses are being diverted.
The amber weather warning covers Central, Tayside and Fife, Grampian, the Highlands and Islands and Argyll and Bute.
