Concerns had been raised about Stephen Russell's wellbeing

A hillwalker reported missing in the Highlands has been found safe and well.

Stephen Russell had apparently been unaware of the search for him after concerns were expressed after he said he was heading for a walk.

Police Scotland said the 43-year-old was found near Invergarry.

He was reported missing on 9 June after being seen in Portree on the Isle of Skye. Police then renewed their appeals when he was reported to have visited the remote A’ Chùil bothy in Glen Dessarry.

Police said they believed he might be walking either the West Highland Way or the Great Glen Way.

A police spokesperson said: “Stephen was traced in the Bridge of Oich area.

“Thank you to everyone who shared the original post and photos.”
