Ross County progressed to the fifth round of the Scottish Cup after overcoming Inverurie Locos.
After dominating the first half, County broke Inverurie's resistance when Steven Craig converted Michael Gardyne's cut-back on 37 minutes.
Scott Morrison's free-kick doubled the home side's lead after the break and Craig grabbed his second soon after.
Gary Miller rounded off the scoring for the First Division side, firing into the top corner with 17 minutes left.
County will host either Stirling Albion or Albion Rovers in the next round.
