POLICE have issued an appeal for drivers with dash-cam footage which may shed light on a north Highland road death tragedy to come forward.

The appeal came as police officially named a 67-year-old woman who died following the incident on the A836 between Ardgay and Bonar Bridge in Sutherland.

She was Rhona Macfarlane, who was from Ardgay.

The incident happened around 4.50pm on Monday, December 23, near to the junction known locally as the Crom junction.

Ms Macfarlane was struck by a red Toyota Arius and died at the scene. The road was closed for around seven hours to allow for a full collision investigation to take place.

Constable Robbie Stewart said: "We are continuing to work to establish the full circumstances of this collision. Rhona's family, friends and all involved are at the forefront of our thoughts as these enquiries continue.

"I am grateful to everyone who has assisted with our enquiries so far and would continue to ask anyone with any information to come forward. Anyone who may have dashcam footage or was in the area at the time of the collision is urged to contact police.”

Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 2546 of December 23, 2019.
