A BODY has been found during the search for an elderly hillwalker reported missing on the remote Isle of Rum.

The Coastguard helicopter based at Stornoway, Mallaig lifeboat, Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team, sniffer dogs and police were all involved in the massive air, land and sea search.

The alarm was raised yesterday (Sun) morning when the man was reported overdue.

However, a Police Scotland spokesman said: “Sadly, the body of a male person has been recovered from a mountainside having apparently fallen.

“Next of kin have been informed. No further details are available at this time.”
