A motorcycle rider has died and a woman who was riding pillion has been seriously injured following a crash in the Scottish Highlands.
The crash, which also involved a van and a car, took place on the A836 to the west of Bettyhill around 5.40pm on Friday.
A 63-year-old man who was riding the motorcycle was pronounced at the scene.
