A 44 year-old Broughty Ferry man who was involved in a car accident earlier this month in Ballater has died in hospital.

Police Scotland confirmed Mark McConnachie died in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary on Wednesday where he was being treated.

Mr McConnachie was involved in a collision on the A93 near Coilacriech, Ballater on Sunday, June 2.

The incident happened at around 12 noon and involved two eastbound motorcycles.

The 48 year old rider of the second motorcycle sustained serious injuries but has since been released from hospital.

Sergeant David Pirie from the Aberdeenshire and Moray division roads policing unit said: “This was a serious collision and sadly a man has now died as a result of the incident. Our thoughts are with Mr McConnachie’s family and friends at this very difficult time.”
