The road was closed for several hours as collision investigators examined the scene. 

Police have now appealed for drivers to get in touch with any dashcam footage of the incident. 

Sgt David Miller from Police Scotland said: ‘We are appealing to any other road users who were in the area around the time of the incident to contact us, did you see a blue Audi, did you pass it on the road?

‘Any small piece of information could be vital in our inquiries.

‘In particular, we would ask motorists with dashcams to check their footage as they could have captured an image which could assist us.’

The vehicle was travelling west on the B817 when it turned right onto the B9176 and appears to have lost control and hit a wall at the junction of Fyrish Substation.

Emergency services attended and a 16-year-old male was pronounced dead at the scene.
