Police officers have issued an appeal for information following the deaths of two men after a car left the A87 at Invergarry.

Road policing officers were made aware at 8am yesterday that a red Ford Focus had left the road and entered the River Garry off the A87.

The incident is believed to have happened around 11pm on Thursday May 23.

Two men, aged 27 and 31, were pronounced dead at the scene. Their next of kin are aware and are being supported by police.

The road was closed for around six hours.

Sergeant Ewan Calder said: “Our investigation into this incident is ongoing whilst we try to establish the full circumstances.

"We are appealing to anyone that may have seen the red Ford Focus, or the two men, prior to the crash. Our enquiries so far have established they were in the Fort Augustus area.

"We would also ask members of the public to check their dashcam or private CCTV footage and please get in touch if it holds anything relevant.”

Anyone with information which may help should contact 101, quoting incident 0620 of 24 May, 2024.
