A drugs courier caught transporting £150,000 of amphetamines into the Highlands has been jailed.
Robert Graham collected 15 kilos of the class-B drugs from Glasgow before driving north in a hire car on November 4 last year.
The 50-year-old was stopped by police on the A82 Fort William to Inverness road at Aberchalder, in Inverness-shire.
Officers found a holdall in the back seat, containing 15 vacuum-sealed bags of amphetamines.
Graham, of Millbank Road, Dingwall, admitted being involved in the suppy of class-B drugs.
He was jailed for three years and four months at the High Court in Edinburgh on Thursday.
The court heard that Graham told police he thought he had picked up cannabis, and was transporting the drugs to pay off a debt.
If sold wholesale, the amphetamines were worth up to £30,000, but broken up into gram deals they would sell for £150,000.
Defence counsel Shahid Latif said his client was "an individual who is ashamed, disappointed and angry with himself for making a gross error of judgement of becoming involved in couriering drugs".
