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.
Campus is looking gorgeous with all the snow! ☃️

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.
