Tributes have been paid to a “happy-go-lucky boy” who died after a two-vehicle crash near Loch Ness.
Samuel Foster was killed in the collision on the A82 at Dochgarroch in the Highlands at around 10.20pm on Sunday.
The 18-year-old of Lochend, near Inverness, was the youngest of four siblings and studied engineering at Inverness College.
His family released a pictured of him and a statement, which said: “Samuel, our darling boy, was incredibly popular and had a huge circle of friends.
“Samuel was a happy-go-lucky boy who was always happy and friendly. This picture is how we will remember him, always with a smile on his face.
“Samuel was the youngest of four siblings and words can’t express how much he will be missed by his parents Heather and Lenny, his brother David and twin sisters Samantha and Kirsty, his nephew Reuben and niece Georgie.
“We would like to thank the incredible number of people who have sent us messages of sympathy – your kind words mean so much and are a reminder of just how popular and well-loved Samuel was.
“We hope he will always be remembered this way.”
