The day after the night before proved costly for a Nairn man who drove while more than three times the legal drink-drive limit.
Inverness Sheriff Court was told that Scott Miller (37) of Ashfield Court, Nairn, had been to a birthday celebration on June 29.
The following day he was driving home through Carrbridge and was involved in a collision on the A95.
He continued on to his property, where police later traced him after the incident was reported.
A breathalyser test gave a reading of 70mcgs of alcohol. The legal limit is 22mcgs.
Solicitor Marc Dickson said: “He had a significant amount to drink the night before and had a modest amount the following day. He thought he was OK to drive but it was a poor error of judgment.”
Miller admitted driving with excess alcohol and was banned from driving for 15 months. He was also fined £300 by Sheriff Sara Matheson.
