SCOTRAIL has confirmed there is some disruption across Scotland’s rail network this morning as a result of flooding and strong winds.

Although the worst of Storm Henk has hit England and Wales, the Met Office did warn on Tuesday the country would be hit by showers and even snow in some parts.

An update on ScotRail’s Twitter/X page shortly after 7am this morning said: “Due to flooding of the railway between Dyce and Inverurie, trains are currently only able to use one line.”

It added a mini bus is “on standby at Aberdeen from 8.30am that can be used as required”.
