Police in the Highlands are appealing for witnesses after a man was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries following a crash involving three motorbikes.

The collision happened at around 3pm on Sunday on the A830 near Lochailort.

One of the bikers, a 60-year-old man, was taken by air ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow.

The two other male motorcyclists suffered minor injuries.

Following the crash, the road was closed in both directions for several hours.

Sergeant Chris Murray said: “This was a collision involving three motorcycles whereby one of the riders sustained serious injuries.

“I would ask that anyone who witnessed the collision, or has dashcam footage, and has not already spoken to one of my officers, that they get in touch.

“I would like to thank the public for their patience during the closure of this route while investigation work was carried out.”
