The 86-year-old male driver of the Nissan suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The occupants of the Peugeot were uninjured.

Road Policing Sergeant Donnie Mackinnon said: “Our thoughts remain with the family and friends of Mrs Taylor at this difficult time.

“The family would like to thank the emergency services and hospital staff within Raigmore Hospital for their help and kind words.

“Our investigation into the collision is ongoing and I would like to pass on our gratitude to everyone who has already assisted with our inquires.

“I would also ask anyone who has information of value but has not yet spoken to an officer to come forward as soon as possible.”
