Missing climber found dead

A WALKER whose body was found two days after he went missing on the Isle of Skye, has been named as a mountain guide from the area.

Graham Paterson, 60, of Carbost, was last seen on Thursday afternoon, when he was spotted falling at Glenbrittle in the Cuillin mountains.

A major search involving police, the RAF and mountain rescue teams was launched for the hillwalker, who was believed to have been injured.

His body was found at about 11am yesterday.

Northern Constabulary, which released his name, said a report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
