The two walkers were found about 3km south-east of Ben More's summit

Two walkers who spent the night on a Highland munro after going missing were found unharmed today.

The pair were with a group of walkers on Ben More near Crianlarich yesterday when they got separated in bad weather.

Killin Mountain Rescue Team was joined by members of the Lomond team yesterday in a search of the 1,174m (3,852ft) mountain in cold, wet conditions with snowfall on the tops of the hills. The walkers had not been seen since 2.40pm on Saturday.

The walkers were found today, unharmed but wet and tired about 3km (2 miles) from the summit and airlifted to safety by a Royal Navy Sea King helicopter from HMS Gannet in Ayrshire.
