Two people were injured following a series of crashes which caused delays on Highland roads yesterday.
Crashes took place in Caithness and Inverness-shire, while a bus caught fire at Culloden, leaving to diversions throughout the Highlands.
A motorcyclist suffered injuries after coming off his motorcycle on the B876 Reiss to Castletown road just after 4pm.
A police spokeswoman said: “A male motorcyclist has been injured following a collision on the B876 five miles from Castletown, near Thurso.
“The road was closed in both directions and reopened at 5.30pm.”
The injuries to the motorcyclist were not as serious as first feared and he was taken to hospital by ambulance for treatment of “non life-threatening injuries” the spokeswoman said.
One fire engine was called to the scene to deal with a fuel spillage on the road following the crash.
Earlier one person was airlifted to Raigmore Hospital after a crash on the A82 Inverness to Fort William road, about one mile north of Fort Augustus.
The collision, involving a car and a 4×4 vehicle, happened shortly before midday.
Both lanes were restricted while the police, fire and ambulance services attended the scene, but were clear by 2pm.
The injuries were last night not thought to be life-threatening.
Fire crews dealt with a bus on fire at Tower Road, Culloden, just outside Inverness.
A fire services spokeswoman said: “The call came in at 3.56pm. The fire caused extensive damage to the bus. The engine was totally destroyed and the seating area was 30% destroyed.
“Our crews used two hose reel jets and two sets of breathing apparatus. They also used a spill kit for the fuel that was running off from the bus.
“It was attended by two appliances from Inverness Fire Station.
“We got the stop message at 4.31pm.”
Police said the bus caught fire while it was parked near the Codfather takeaway, but that all passengers got off safely, were uninjured and accounted for.
The road was closed for several hours and a diversion was in place via Woodside Farm Drive while a clear up operation took place.
Highland Council had been contacted to clean up debris left on the road by the fire.
