The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said there was no sign of a gas leak in the centre of Aviemore following investigations this morning.

The concerns followed reports of a strong smell of gas which could be detected across a large part of the village.

It is understood that Mountain Warehouse at the Aviemore shopping centre had to close its doors for a while as the smell was so strong.

Firefighters have since investigated and reported that there was no sign of a gas leak in the vicinity.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: “We were alerted at 11.07am today to reports of a smell of gas on Grampian Road in Aviemore.

"Operations control mobilised one appliance to the scene where firefighters investigated the area.

"There was no sign of a gas leak and crews left at 12.11pm."

A number of people reported smelling gas in the centre of Aviemore earlier today on local social media.

Iain Gemmill said: "It's reeking all over town."

Keri Alexander said: "Ah, I did wonder what the foul smell in the air was here at Myrtlefield,"

Clive Rose posted: "I thought I could smell gas on the way down to the hospital but then I thought there's no mains gas in Aviemore."
