A family has paid a loving tribute to “our beautiful little hurricane” after the death of a six-year-old Highland boy while on holiday in Cyprus.
Ruaridh Nairne lost his life on October 14 after being found unconscious in a swimming pool in Paphos.
The primary two pupil at Ness Castle Primary School in Inverness was given first aid treatment at the scene by a lifeguard before being taken to Paphos General Hospital, then Makario Children’s Hospital in Nicosia, where he passed away.
