Two vehicles were involved in a crash that closed the A9 at Drumochter Pass this morning.

The Inverness to Perth road is closed in both directions due to a crash north of Dalnaspidal, near Dalwhinnie.

The incident was reported at around 5.45 am this morning, with police and paramedic crews attending.

Emergency services remain at the scene.

Motorists are being advised to use an alternative route and prepare for longer than normal journey times.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "Around 5.45am on Tuesday, 1 August, police were called to a report of a road crash involving two vehicles on the A9 near to Drumochter Pass. Officers are currently at the scene."

Northbound passengers will travel as far as Perth Broxden, with shuttle buses transporting them to Perth railway station for onward travel.

Meanwhile, bus services heading south from Inverness will travel as far as Aviemore.
