A 73-year-old man has died following a road traffic collision on the A832 near Munlochy on Saturday.
A police spokesman confirmed the incident was first reported shortly after 8.30am and the victim, who was driving a grey Ford Focus, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Scottish Ambulance Service.
The driver of the other vehicle, a 57-year-old male, was taken to Raigmore Hospital with minor injuries, where he was later released after treatment.
Sergeant Chris Murray said: “Our thoughts are very much with the family and friends of the gentleman involved at this sad time.
“Our enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances.
“I would ask anyone who may have information, but has not yet spoken to a police officer to call the Road Policing Unit in Dingwall on 101, quoting incident 1107 of July 21.”
The road was closed for around six hours to allow for a collision investigation to take place.
It is understood the other vehicle involved in the incident was a four-by-four truck, which was towing a horse box.
The incident is the latest in a spate of road traffic collisions which have happened across the Highlands this summer, several with fatal consequences.
Last week, James Stead, 50, of Evanton was killed in a collision involving his Triumph motorcycle and a burgundy Ford Fiesta.
The incident occurred half a mile north of the Corrieshalloch Gorge junction on the A835 Inverness to Ullapool road. Emergency services rushed to the scene, but Mr Stead was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Police subsequently issued an appeal to the public via social media, which stated: “Enquiries are ongoing into the incident.
“Anybody with information who has not yet spoken to an officer is asked to contact the Road Policing Unit in Dingwall on 101, quoting reference NE4748/18.”
