The man, who police believe is between 25 and 35-years-old, was discovered at around 11.50am on Sunday by Ferry Road in Dingwall close to the River Conon.

His death is being treated as unexplained and officers have opened an investigation to establish what happened.

He is described as white, between 5ft 7in and 5ft 10in tall, of athletic build with short spiked ginger hair and short facial hair.

He was wearing a grey “Rainbows for Heroes” t-shirt, a black Trespass jacket, blue Under Armour jogging bottoms and black Skechers trainers.

“I would urge anyone who believes they may be able to assist with identifying the man or may have any other information that could help with our investigation to contact 101 as soon as possible, quoting incident 1731 of November 14.”
