A man is fighting for his life and two others have been left in serious conditions having been airlifted to hospital following a crash between two motorbikes on a Highland road.

The accident, which involved a Harley Davidson and a KTM motorbike, occurred on the A939 at Dirdhu, near Bridge of Brown around 3pm on Wednesday.

The driver of the Harley Davidson, 57, and his 42-year-old female passenger were flown to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Hospital staff have said the man is in “critical” condition, and the woman is in serious but stable condition.

The 35-year-old driver of the KTM bike was also airlifted to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, where he remains in a serious but stable condition.

Police closed the road after the collision, warning that the stretch between Dorback junction and the B9136 junction was likely to be inaccessible for some time. It has since been reopened.

Sergeant Alasdair Mackay of the Divisional Road Policing Unit at Dingwall said: “Our enquiries are ongoing to establish the cause of the crash.

“I would appeal to anyone with information, or anyone who was driving on the A939 near to Dirdhu shortly before the crash happened who may have seen these motorbikes being driven to contact us. If you were on this road around the time of the crash and have dash-cam footage, please let us know.

“Information can be passed to officers through 101 quoting reference 2072 of June 15.”
