A 50-year-old woman died and an eight-year-old boy were injured when a car crashed into spectators during a rally in the Scottish Highlands, police said.
The collision happened during the Highland Car Club Snowman Rally in Glenurquhart Forest, near Loch Ness.
The boy's condition is not believed to be life threatening and he has been taken to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness.
Neither the driver or the co-driver of the vehicle was injured, and no other spectators were hurt, Northern Constabulary said.
The rally was abandoned after the collision during the first stage of the event.
Officers will carry out a full road collision investigation and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
