A 63-year-old woman has died after a road crash on the Black Isle in the Highlands.

An air ambulance was called to the scene, close to Rosemarkie, to assist paramedics, firefighters and police officers.

The collision on the B9160 road, close to its junction with the A832, involved a Skoda Octavia and a Skoda Yeti.
