Chloe Morrison was tragically killed in a road accident as she walked on the pavement next to the A82.
Miss Morrison, who was an early years practitioner at Holm Primary School nursery, was killed in her home village of Drumnadrochit after being struck by a lorry last Friday.
The 26-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene near to Kerrowdown, on the A82, shortly after 1.10pm.
Her family said they are absolutely devastated at the loss of “their beloved Chloe”.
In a tribute, Miss Morrison’s family said she was the youngest daughter of Bobo and Karen Morrison and dearest sister to Jodi. They stated she would be sorely missed by all her family and friends and was “forever in our hearts”.
Sergeant Ewan Calder from Police Scotland’s road policing unit said: “Our thoughts are with all of Chloe Morrison’s family and friends and our inquiries into this incident are ongoing.
“We would ask any motorists or members of the public who were in the area and may have witnessed the collision, or who may have dash-cam footage, and have not yet spoken to or provided this information to officers, to contact us as soon as possible.
“Anyone with information should call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 1775 of October 25, 2019.”
A Crown Office spokesman said the procurator fiscal has received a report in connection with the death.
Bryony Roberts (28), a neighbour of the family in Drumnadrochit, said that everyone in the village was devastated by Miss Morrison’s death, she said: “No-one can believe that this has happened.
“Chloe used to work at Urquhart Castle, and no-one has anything but nice things to say about her.
“She will be a huge loss to the community.”
Highland Council said pupils and staff at the 49-place Holm nursery were being offered support to come to terms with the loss of their teacher and colleague.
On social media, parents of pupils taught by Miss Morrison spoke of a warm, exceptional teacher who took time to listen and talk to her pupils.
One mum Caitriona MacDonald said: “Absolutely devastated. My two [children] adored Miss Morrison at breakfast club. She will be sorely missed.”
Another parent, Gillian Gunn, said: “Chloe was my little boy’s key worker at nursery and was just brilliant with him. We will miss her so much.”
Mum Kerry MacDonald added: “Kind, caring and always had a warm welcome and friendly smile.”
