POLICE want to trace witnesses who may be able to cast light on the death of a 74-year-old man near Ullapool.
Police Scotland says it was made aware of the sudden death of the man yesterday following a diving incident in the Ardmair Bay area.
The man was taken to Raigmore Hospital but died a short time later.
The death is currently being treated as unexplained though police say there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances.
A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal in due course, as is the case with all sudden deaths.
Inspector Kevin MacLeod said: "Our thoughts are with his family at this very sad time.
"As part of our enquiries I would like to appeal to three kayakers who were in the area yesterday who we understand assisted with the incident at the time. Unfortunately they left the scene before their details could be noted."
