Body Recovered in Search for Missing Hillwalkers

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Sunday February 11 2018

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 (pictured) who was reported missing with his brother after failing to return from a walk in the area on Thursday February 8, 2018.

The recovery follows a day of extensive searching by Torridon and Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Teams, Coastguard Rescue Helicopter and the Search and Rescue Dog Association.

The family of Alan have been informed and our thoughts are with them at this very sad time.

Searches are ongoing for Alan's brother Neil who was also reported overdue in that area.
