Rescuers continued their search at the weekend for a walker who has been missing for two months in the remote Highlands of Wester Ross.

Members of Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team were joined on Sunday by a handler and animal from the Search and Rescue Dogs Association.

The rescuers searched several peaks in the Fisherfield Forest without success.

A Dundonnell MRT spokesperson said: “Search activity focused on the vicinity of Lochan Fada, Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair and Meall Garbh.

“Sadly, no new evidence of Martin’s whereabouts was discovered and he remains untraced at this time.”

Martin Rhodes, an experienced walker from Halifax in West Yorkshire, was reported missing in the Kinlochewe area.

The 46-year-old left his accommodation about 8.30am on 1 May and was believed to have set out for a walk, but did not leave any route details.
