Former Scotland winger Alastair Biggar has died following a battle with cancer at the age of 69.
Edinburgh-born Biggar, who played for London Scottish, won 12 caps between 1969 and 1972.
He won his first cap in the 6-3 victory against South Africa at Murrayfield in 1969 and scored his first try for Scotland the following year in a 14-5 home win against England.
Biggar was selected for the 1971 British Lions tour of New Zealand, scoring nine tries in 10 games including a hat-trick against Marlborough Nelson Bays.
Alastair's cousin, former Scotland captain Mike Biggar, said: "Alastair had buckets of talent. One of his team-mates at London Scottish, John Fraser, a redoubtable prop, reckoned Al was the most talented player he was ever on the same pitch as."
Scottish Rugby has extended its sincere condolences to Alastair Biggar's family and friends.
