The body of one of two walkers reported missing in the Scottish Highlands has been discovered by mountain rescue teams.
Alan Gibson, 56, was formally identified by police as the search continued for his brother Neil, 63.
The brothers had set off on a hike at about 7.45am on Thursday morning from the small village of Strathcarron in Wester Ross in north west Scotland.
The alarm was raised that evening after the pair, who were walking with a black Pointer dog called Archie, failed to return.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Mountain rescue teams searching in the area of Achnashellach for two missing hillwalkers have sadly recovered the body of a man.
“He has been formally identified as Alan Gibson who was reported missing with his brother after failing to return from a walk in the area on Thursday.”
The family of Mr Gibson has been informed and the search for his brother will continue.
