A walker has been found safe and well after a major search in north-west Scotland.

The 50-year-old Dutch man became separated from his walking companions yesterday, Friday, in the Cape Wrath area. The alarm was raised about 4pm and a search and rescue operation began.

The hunt for the missing man was suspended and resumed at first light this morning. Assynt Mountain Rescue Team was joined by the Coastguard and an RAF helicopter in the operation.

Search dogs were also called in this morning and the man was found unharmed. Northern Constabulary have not released any further details of the walker.
