A funeral is being held for two young brothers who died in a canoeing accident which also claimed the life of their five-year-old friend.
Ewen Beaton, five, and his brother Jamie, two, were rescued by helicopter when the six-man canoe they were in capsized on Loch Gairloch in Wester Ross, in the Scottish Highlands, on Sunday August 26.
They were airlifted to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness where they died later that night.
The body of the boys' 32-year-old father, also named Ewen, is still missing. He is presumed drowned.
Family friend Grace Mackay, five, was also pulled from the water after the accident but she too lost her fight for life last week in Glasgow's Yorkhill children's hospital. Grace's sister Callie, eight, and their father Garry, 35, managed to swim the 500 metres to shore and raise the alarm.
The Beaton family, from Beauly, near Inverness, offered thanks for the efforts in trying to find Mr Beaton.
In a statement, they said: "We would like to thank the police, coastguard, RNLI and all the other emergency services who did everything they could for little Ewen and Jamie. We would also like to thank everyone for their tireless efforts in the ongoing search for Ewen, including emergency services, local residents and visitors to Gairloch.
"Our focus remains firmly on finding Ewen and bringing him home. We would again like to thank everyone for their continued efforts to find him, particularly our dear friends in the local community. Our thoughts are also with the Mackay family at this extremely difficult time."
Ewen and Jamie's funeral is at Inverness Crematorium. Ewen was in his first year at Teanassie primary school near Beauly. Acting headteacher Alison Donald said Ewen's mother Jo is a cleaner at the school and that the thoughts of the staff are with her and the family.
"Everyone in the school recognises Ewen as a lovely, lively, little boy who was always fun to have around. His younger brother Jamie always had a cheery smile when he visited the school," she said.
