A man who died in a crash in the Highlands on Sunday (September 17) has been named as Peter Kennedy from Aberdeen.

The incident happened at around 8.10am on the B9091 at Croy.

Peter was the driver and sole occupant of a silver Kia Picanto car, which was the only vehicle involved.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sergeant Neil MacDonald said: “Our thoughts remain with Peter’s family and friends at this very difficult time. “Our investigation to establish the full circumstances are ongoing and I would urge anyone with information who has not yet spoken to us to come forward."

The 56-year-old was a dedicated member of the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire branch of the Scottish Green party.

In a statement posted to social media, co-convenors Guy Ingerson and Louise McCafferty said: "As well as serving in a number of roles across our party, Peter previously worked for Aberdeenshire Council and was part of many clubs, associations, organisations, and movements, both locally and across Scotland.

"His life has touched many, and his dedication to environmental and social justice has been extensive. He was a friend. Many will feel his loss greatly today. 

"Our thoughts go out to his loved ones at this difficult time."
