Appealing for witnesses, Sergeant Stephen Quinn, of Road Policing East, said: “Our thoughts remain with the family of Robyn at this extremely difficult time.

“I wish to send my thanks to the emergency service crews and members of the public who assisted at the scene.”

Robyn’s devastated parents, mum, Daanielle, and her dad, Barry, said they were “absolutely shattered into million pieces.”

In a post on social media, they paid moving tribute to the “most loving, kind, gentle and caring wee soul with the biggest heart.”

Robyn’s uncle, Paul Marshall, also set up an online crowdfunding appeal to help with funeral costs.

In little more than nine hours, it raised over £10,000.

Next week, he also plans to walk the West Highland Way in Robyn’s memory, and raise further funds.

On the appeal page, he wrote: “ Robyn was only three years old and had her whole life ahead of her. I am hoping to raise some funds for her funeral to help give our little princess the send off she deserves.”

Police said inquiries were continuing into the circumstances, and have appealed to any motorists with dash cam footage of the area at the time to get in touch.
