James Robertson is believed to have gone hillwalking

A search is underway for a missing walker in the Highlands.

Police are appealing for sightings of James Robertson, who has not been seen since Monday.

The 61-year-old, from Cathcart, Glasgow, is believed to have travelled to the Cairngorms to go hillwalking. Police said mountain rescue team members are searching the area for Mr Robertson.

He is described as 5ft 10ins (1.78m) tall, medium build, with short grey hair and wearing glasses. He is believed to be carrying a large rucksack.

Braemar Mountain Rescue Team said Mr Robertson was staying at the Bob Scott Memorial Hut in Glen Lui during the week.

A team spokesperson said: “If anyone has been out walking in the southern Cairngorms, particularly hills accessible from the bothy, and think they may have met or seen this lone walker please get in touch with us.

“If you are out tomorrow, please keep an eye out for him.”

Anyone who may have seen Mr Robertson is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.
