Frozen Scotland

* School closures on Tuesday
* 'Vital' heating oil boats arrive
* Travel warning as snow continues
* Travel warning as snow hits north

Air passengers in Scotland have been hit by the knock-on effect of airport closures at major hubs in England, despite Scottish runways staying open.

Aberdeen Airport said about a quarter of its flights were cancelled because of the weather disrupting Heathrow.

Glasgow and Edinburgh airports have also had many delays and cancellations.

Despite heavy snow falls, particularly in the north east, Scotland has not been as badly affected as it was by the weather two weeks ago.

Officials at Heathrow airport in London said no more than a third of all flights would operate until 0600 GMT on Wednesday and warned passengers to expect delays and cancellations, possibly until Christmas Day.

Aberdeen Airport warned passengers that severe disruption would continue on Tuesday.

It said passengers should check with their airline before leaving home.

Temperatures dropped overnight to -5C across most of Scotland. However, in Cardrona in the Scottish Borders the temperature was reported to have dropped to -18.

Scotland was set to avoid heavy snow in most areas, with Tuesday forecast to be dry, though still bitterly cold.

The Met Office did issue a warning of heavy snow in Moray.

The roads are said to be treacherous due to freezing fog and ice, and cross-border rail services are subject to delay.

* Advice on protecting pipes

More than 50 schools in Aberdeenshire will be shut to pupils, but almost all schools in the central belt are open with just a few exceptions, largely because of problems with frozen pipes or heating.

A handful of nurseries and primary schools in Edinburgh, East Lothian and Fife are staying shut.

Most councils opened their schools on Monday but there were closures in the Aberdeenshire, Moray and Orkney areas.

Tuesday looks to be an improving picture but some councils were waiting until the morning before making a decision.

On the trains, ScotRail said that most services were running.

The Edinburgh Waverley to Glasgow Queen Street service remains half-hourly in both directions and the Edinburgh to Perth services has been suspended.

A number of other services, such as Glasgow Central to Ayr and Ardrossan, have also been badly affected.

Train operator East Coast said it was running a "normal" timetable for Anglo-Scottish services.
