The walker collapsed while making his way up Ben Nevis

A walker has died after collapsing on the ascent of Britain’s highest mountain.

Two off-duty doctors who were on Ben Nevis at the time could not save the 51-year-old’s life.

The man, from the Glasgow area, was making his way up the tourist track yesterday when he collapsed.

Police were alerted about 12.25pm and a Sea King search and rescue helicopter from RAF Lossiemouth flew to the mountain.

His companions and the two doctors tended to him at the scene and he was airlifted to Belford Hospital in Fort William, but pronounced dead on arrival.

Police Scotland said no further details would be released until all next of kin have been informed.
