A MOTORCYCLE rider has died in hospital in Inverness following a road crash in Sutherland earlier this week.

The rider, a 52-year-old man who has not been named, was involved in a single-vehicle crash on the A837, just over a mile north of Inchnadamph on Tuesday afternoon.

Police Scotland have now confirmed that he died from his injuries at Raigmore Hospital yesterday afternoon.

Anyone who saw the bike beforehand or witnessed the crash, which occurred at around 3pm on Tuesday, has been urged to contact officers investigating the collision.

The man was riding a grey BMW R1200 motorcycle towards Lochinver when the crash happened.

Road Policing Sergeant, Donnie Mackinnon, said: "Our thoughts are with the man's family and friends at this difficult time for them.

"We are carrying out enquiries to establish the full circumstances of the collision and would urge anyone who may have any information to come forward.

"Any information can be passed on by calling the Road Policing Unit in Dingwall on 101, quoting incident 2147 of April 9.

"The road was closed until around 8.30pm [on Tuesday] to allow for an investigation at the scene and I would thank anyone affected by this for their patience and understanding."
