Many residents on the Isle of Arran are preparing to spend their fourth night without electricity.
Engineers have been working around the clock to restore power to the island off the west coast of Scotland, but the damage is likely to take weeks to put right.
ITV News Scotland Correspondent Debi Edward reports from Arran:
The wintry conditions are now expected to last well into April with this month on track to become the coldest March since 1962.
A group of students from Wolverhampton who were stranded in extreme snow in Scotland for more than three days tell their story of survival.
Cold weather can pose a real health risk to older and disabled people, but everyone can gain from preparing their homes for the cold.
