Ian Stalker has been reported missing after going walking in Knoydart

Police are appealing for sightings of a walker who has gone missing in the Highlands.

Ian Stalker was reported overdue from a journey in Knoydart.

The 65-year-old from the Edinburgh area was due back from a walk in the Sgurr a’ Choire-bheithe area on Tuesday, but has not made contact and was reported missing on Wednesday morning.

Mr Stalker is described as 6ft (1.83m) tall, with balding grey hair and brown eyes. Police said he is likely to have been wearing black walking trousers, brown leather boots, either a red or blue fleece and using walking poles.

Sergeant Keith Almond said: “We are urging any other hillwalkers who have been in the Knoydart area and believes they have seen Mr Stalker or a man matching his description to get in touch urgently.

“You can contact police in Fort William on 101, quoting incident 1080 of May 30.”

Sgurr a’ Choire-bheithe is a 913m-high corbett in the Barrisdale Forest, between Loch Cuaich and Barrisdale Bay.
