Tributes have been paid to a north father-of-two who died suddenly on a golfing holiday to Ireland.
Martin Duncan, 35, collapsed and died during the trip which was also attended by his father.
The popular Lochaber man leaves a widow Siobhan and two young daughters.
His father, James, known as Chambers, is the steward at Fort William Golf Club and his son joined a party of around 20 members for their annual trip to Ireland.
It is the first time Martin Duncan – who stayed in Caol – had taken part in this particular golf trip and it is understood he suffered a heart attack not long after they arrived.
He was also due to attend a friend’s wedding in a few weeks’ time.
Mr Duncan was a keen sportsman and played for Fort William FC when he was younger and also played “at every level” for Kilmallie Shinty Club.
No games will be played at Kilmallie this weekend, but tonight, blue and white balloons – the team’s colours – will be released in his memory before the start of the under-14s match.
Mr Duncan, who worked offshore, came along to watch his nephew play in the team when he was at home.
A statement from the club said: “There will be no Kilmallie games this weekend as mark of respect.
“Martin played at every level for Kilmallie Shinty Club and was gifted with great ability.
“Everybody’s thoughts are with Siobhan and the whole family at this time.”
Mr Duncan, described as a “cracking player” was part of the Kilmallie ‘dream team’ which won the treble.
Their coach, Dougal MacPhee, said: “Martin was in the team when we won the league, the Sutherland cup and the Strathdearn cup.
“He would have been around 17 then and was a cracking shinty player. He was always up to mischief and was the life and soul of the party.
“He also played for the seniors for a few years too.
“We are just so shocked by his death – it came right out of the blue.”
Sharon Kane volunteered to help look after the golf club while Chambers Duncan was away.
She said: “This is a regular event for the club, but it’s the first time Martin had gone along.
“It was such a shock when I heard what had happened – I don’t think he had a chance to play at all. I believe he had a heart attack.
“It’s so sad. I’ve known him for a long time as he was friendly with my kids. He was to have been at my son’s wedding in four weeks.”
Mr Duncan’s funeral will be held at St John’s Church in Caol on Tuesday.
