Police are appealing for information after a man died in a fatal crash involving a motorcycle and an ambulance.
The accident took place on the A83 Tarbet to Campbeltown road near Lochgair in Mid Argyll on Saturday.
Police investigators are calling on any motorists with dash cam footage who were in the area at the time to come forward if they can offer help with the inquiry.
At about 2.30pm a motorcyclist was travelling southbound when his machine was involved in collision with the ambulance.
Emergency services attended and the 61-year-old man, believed to be from the Glasgow area, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Sergeant Paul MacPherson, from the divisional road policing unit based at Dumbarton, said: “I would appeal to anyone who was on the A83 around the time of the crash and may have observed the motorcyclist, who had been travelling in a group, to please come forward.
“I would also ask any motorists with dash cams to get in touch as they may have footage of the incident or of the vehicles travelling on the road beforehand.
“Anyone with information can contact the divisional road policing unit based at Dumbarton via 101.”
The crash took place on a stretch of road between Lochgair and Minard.
The ambulance involved did not have a patient on board at the time and was not attending an incident. It was returning to its base when the crash took place.
It is understood that the Scottish Ambulance Service staff were uninjured.
A spokesman for the ambulance service said they could not comment any further because a police investigation was underway.
Reports on social media said the ambulance went off the road and onto its side.
The road was closed for several hours at Lochgair, which meant a lengthy diversion between Lochgilphead and Inveraray along the single track Loch Awe road from Ford to Portsonachan.
Some motorists living locally used a forest road to get home before the trunk road reopened in the early hours of Sunday morning.
A family wrestling event in Tarbert, Kintyre, is understood to have taken place later than planned as a result of the crash.
