A cyclist has tragically died after a crash involving a car in the Highlands.
The 57-year-old man was named yesterday as Hanno Garbe from Aviemore.
He was taken to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness by ambulance following the accident on Monday afternoon, but died yesterday morning as a result of his injuries.
The incident occurred around 3.20pm on Monday with emergency services racing to the scene on the B9152 road between Aviemore and Kincraig.

They have asked any witnesses or anybody who may possess any dashcam footage to come forward.
Mr Garbe was riding a black racing bike in the area near Loch Alvie, around a quarter of a mile north of the Rowan Tree Country Hotel, when the collision occurred.
A silver Kia Picanto car was involved in the incident. The driver of the vehicle was unhurt.
Both the bonnet and the windscreen of the Kia car were severely damaged, with muddy tyre marks left on the road.
The rear wheel of the bicycle and pedals ended up trapped underneath the nearside front wheel of the car.
Road policing sergeant Gus Murray said: “Our thoughts are with Mr Garbe’s family and friends at this time.
“Our enquiries into this collision are ongoing and we would continue to urge anyone with information to come forward.
“We would urge anyone who may have witnessed the collision but has not yet spoken to police to come forward.
“We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have dashcam footage which may help with our enquiries.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.
Local councillor John Bruce said: “It is so sad when these things happen and I am just very sorry for the loss of life on that road.
“My thoughts are very much with the family of the cyclist.”
Police and ambulance personnel attended to the scene of the crash with an ambulance spokesman saying: “We dispatched our Pre-hospital Immediate Care and Trauma (PICT) response team, one ambulance and our helimed air ambulance to the scene.
“We transported one patient by road to Raigmore Hospital.”
The road was closed for several hours as officers conducted investigations before reopening shortly before 11pm on Monday.
