A man has died after falling on a Lochaber mountain.

Kieran Shaw was on a route near the East Gully on Aonach Mòr on Sunday when he fell.

Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team was called out about 3.30pm and the Inverness Coastguard helicopter also flew to the scene.

The 21-year-old, from Helensburgh in Argyll, was airlifted to the Belford Hospital in Fort William, but died from his injuries despite the efforts of medical staff.

Police Scotland said Mr Shaw was climbing with another man in the area at the time of the incident.

A spokesperson said: “There are no suspicious circumstances and as with all sudden deaths a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.”

The munro Aonach Mòr is the UK’s ninth-highest mountain at 1,221m (4,006ft) and is best known for its winter climbing routes. It is also home to the Nevis Range ski resort and mountain biking venue.
