Experts from a mountain rescue team were called in to help recover the body of a man missing for a year discovered high up in Glencoe.
Police believe they have found Alan Taylor’s corpse after the 57-year-old was last seen on September 8, 2021.
The Dundee man is thought to have been at The Three Sisters in Glencoe the following day.
Members of the Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team were called up by Police Scotland to assist in recovering the body which was in a difficult to reach gully high in the glen below Aonach Eagach Ridge.
The team said retrieving the remains safely required “specialist mountaineering skills”.
“It was the solemn duty of our volunteers to assist Police Scotland in recovering the body,” a spokesperson said.
“Our thoughts are with Alan’s friends and family at this time.”
While formal identification has yet to take place, police confirmed that officers are liaising with Mr Taylor’s family and the death is not being treated as suspicious.
A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “On Wednesday August 31, 2022, police received a report the body of a man had been discovered in a gully near Aonach Eagach Ridge, Glencoe.
“A formal identification has still to take place, however, police believe it to be 57-year-old Alan Taylor, who has been missing from Dundee since September 2021.
“Officers are liaising with the family. The death is not being treated as suspicious and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.”
