A walker has died on a Scottish mountain after becoming separated from his companions.
The 75-year-old was reported missing last night, Saturday, after he failed to return to a trip on Ben Cruachan.
A helicopter crew joined mountain rescuers in a search for the missing man after they were called out about 9.30pm.
The hunt for the missing walker on the 1,126m (3,649ft) mountain north of the Pass of Brander was suspended in the early hours of the morning and resumed at first light.
The man’s body was discovered about 12 hours after he was reported missing.
Police said no details would be released until next of kin have been informed.
- Two climbers were airlifted from a Cairngorms mountain after a rockfall on a route.
The pair were on Eagle Ridge on Lochnagar, south-east of Braemar when the incident happened. The climbers suffered suspected broken legs and were airlifted to hospital.
Three others on the route were uninjured and were able to abseil off the rockface.
