LNER have issued a 'do not travel' warning while CrossCountry are running no services north of Edinburgh.

Those travelling to Glasgow from the south using Avanti West Coast will be forced to deal with a reduced hourly service, however most ScotRail trains are operating normally with some delays.

ScotRail said the routes most likely to affected by the weather include Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh, Glasgow to Fort William, Oban and Mallaig, and Kilwinning to Largs and Ardrossan.

Services will be suspended on the West Highland Line from early afternoon until noon on Monday.

Those travelling to Largs or Ardrossan should expect disruption around high tide, at midday, with the storm potentially meaning trains will be unable to run.

Trains going between Edinburgh and Helensburgh Central will terminate at start back from Dumbarton Central with a shuttle bus operating between Dumbarton and Helensburgh in both directions.
