Yesterday there were misleading indications on the website and roadside panels that the A9 was closed at Dalwhinnie, whereas we later learned from friends who had driven up to Inverness that an accident had caused a hold-up and delay of about one hour.
Consequently we cancelled our journey and forfeited our prepaid hotel booking.
The A9 is the only road from Perth to Inverness - there are no alternatives - and inaccurate information is a disaster.
Today, there are indicators on the map showing that the snowgates are closed at Spittal of Glenshee and Braemar.
Perhaps your operators do not know where these places are.
Spittal of Glenshee is certainly not down in Fife but on the A93 about 30 miles north of Perth!
The Braemar snowgates are just south of Braemar, again on the A93 and not on the A9 near Blair Atholl.
Two or three days ago you had warnings about snow on the A90 between a junction at Forfar which does not exist and a Dalziel Road in Dundee. Dalziel Road is a backstreet in Tealing, 3 miles north of Dundee, and would be unknown to anybody other than local residents.
