Two men have been killed in a crash involving a van and a bus taking people to this weekend's RockNess music festival.
The van driver and his passenger died of their injuries following the collision on the A9 at Ralia, in the Highlands.
The bus driver was airlifted to the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow with serious injuries after she became trapped in the vehicle.
Fourteen passengers have been taken to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness for treatment to a range of injuries, none of which are life-threatening.
Northern Constabulary said there were 47 people on board the bus, including the driver. Police said the vehicle was a service bus from Edinburgh, bound for the three-day festival in Dores, on the banks of Loch Ness.
They started receiving numerous calls from the public about the incident at around 3.40pm on Friday.
Thirty-two passengers were taken by bus to Inverness, where Highland Council is arranging accommodation if necessary.
Officers said the identities of the men who died will not be released until their relatives have been told. The crash happened between the A889 and B9150 junctions.
