A crowdfunding campaign has been launched towards the cost of the funeral of a Highland man whose death prompted a police investigation.

Ross MacGillivray (36) was pronounced dead after police officers were called to a property in the St Ninian Drive area of Dalneigh earlier this month.

An online fundraising campaign on GoFundMe states his brothers Douglas and Dylan hope to raise £5000 towards the cost of his funeral.

So far, £755 has been pledged.

The fundraising page states: "Ross grew up in the Smithton area and spent his life in Inverness.

"He was well known for being a bit of a maverick and all of his friends would have called him a lovable dafty.

"Ross’s family are devastated at the incident surrounding his death and wish to celebrate his life.

"Any funds raised above that required for the funeral will be given to his children Cohen, Keira, Nellie, Eli and his step-son Taylor to help them in the coming months and years.

"The family wish to thank anyone who contributes."

Two men have been arrested in connection with the death of Mr MacGillivray and are due to appear in court today.
