Police Scotland has confirmed the identity of the woman who died following a road traffic collision on the A87 near Kyle of Lochalsh on Monday February 4.

She was Anne Marie MacDonald, 62, from Portree on Skye.

Mrs MacDonald was the front-seat passenger in a black BMW 320d which had been travelling west on the A87 before leaving the road near Kirkton and colliding with a tree.

Emergency services were called shortly before 5.20pm. However, she died of her injuries at the scene.

The 64-year-old male driver suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries and no other vehicles were involved in the collision.

Sergeant Alasdair Mackay commented: ‘Our thoughts remain with the family and friends of Mrs MacDonald at this difficult time.

‘Our investigation into the collision is ongoing and I would like to pass on our gratitude to everyone who has already assisted with our inquiries.

‘I would ask anyone who has information of value but has not yet spoken to an officer to come forward as soon as possible.’
