All classes have been cancelled at the University of Stirling this afternoon, after heavy snowfall turned the campus into a winter wonderland.

Cars have been battling to get around Stirling as the MetOffice amber weather warning became a reality for many, but a dream come true for others.

The bad weather also meant the Union had to cancel its alpaca visit as part of the Freshers’ Week. The event has been rescheduled for February 14.

First Bus has also responded to queries about whether the UniLink buses are still running, to which is stated they are still running at present.

According to the MetOffice, Stirling is set to continue to have the cold weather today, but with the chance the falling snow could turn to rain by mid-afternoon.

Saturday looks to be a glorious day to enjoy the fresh powder, but Sunday looks set to turn wet and possibly snowy again.

In terms of traffic, congestion remains likely, with one lane of the A9 to Dunblane closed due to an accident.

The A907 Alloa Road remains busy with slow moving traffic, as does the A9 in town at the Customs Roundabout at the bottom of Union Street.

If you are travelling to and from university, stay safe and wear proper footwear. That can include skis.

All information regarding the weather for different services can be found by following these links to First Bus, the MetOffice, Traffic Scotland, Stirling Council and ScotRail.
