Police have issued an appeal in a bid to track down a cyclist following a dangerous overtake by a large vehicle on the A835 near Ullapool.

The incident happened on Saturday, June 5 when the vehicle towing a trailer overtook the cyclist who was travelling west along the A835

Police Scotland said it caused east-bound traffic to take evasive action and could have caused serious injury to the cyclist.

The driver of the vehicle was stopped soon afterwards by police.

Police Constable Cormack, from the road policing unit based in Dingwall, is hoping to identify the male cyclist in order to obtain a witness statement regarding the incident.

The cyclist is described as slim, wearing a blue jacket, black shorts and yellow helmet. He was on a road bike with black panniers in the front and back.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the cyclist is asked to call 101, quoting case reference number NE2401/21.
