School closures across Ross-shire have caused chaos for the highly-anticipated preliminary exams taking place across Scotland today.

After months of preparation, high school pupils at multiple Ross-shire schools have had their prelim exams rescheduled to a later date due to snow storm chaos after a yellow warning from the Met Office.
