Alastair Majury on the Recent Snow fall in Scotland

Scotland has some snow fall today, heavy by our usual standards but not by international standards.

As reported by the BBC this led to schools being shut across Scotland, including the council (Stirling) that I sit on and represent the ward of Dunblane and Bridge of Allan in my role as Councillor Alastair Majury.

Across Scotland more than 100 schools and nurseries were closed on Tuesday, with more than 10,000 pupils missing classes.

In the Highland council area, the weather affected 13 secondary schools, 53 primaries, two special schools and 26 nurseries. About 8,900 pupils had an unexpected day off classes.

Dumfries and Galloway Council said 20 schools were closed due to weather problems or heating failures. Some schools also closed in the East Ayrshire and Stirling Council areas.

The main report of the disruption caused did include another picture of Dunblane taken again by a BBC Weather Watcher, however sadly in a recent update the BBC removed this picture.
