A woman who has been staying in a youth hostel in the Highlands has started her journey to the north-east to be tested for Ebola.
The health worker, who is understood to have been working in West Africa, has now left the Torridon area and is being escorted by police to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
Medics in protective suits are also part of the convoy.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the patient – who is understood to originally be from England – had recently returned from Africa, but was not thought to have had any direct contact with people infected with Ebola.
She has not had any contact in the UK with the confirmed case from Glasgow.
The patient is stable and is not giving any cause for clinical concern and NHS Grampian insist the risk to the general public of contracting Ebola in Scotland remains very low.
