THE search for a missing hillwalker on the Isle of Skye has entered its third day.

Oliver Smith, from Fife, failed to return to his holiday accommodation on the island on Saturday after setting out to climb the Blaven peak in the morning.

The 33-year-old had planned to walk via Loch Coruisk and the coastal path to Elgol, police said.

Four mountain rescue teams from Skye, Glenelg, Kintail and the RAF are involved in the operation to find Mr Smith, which was launched on Sunday, along with police, sniffer dogs and a coastguard helicopter.

Police Scotland said the search resumed at 9am today.

Mr Smith is described as 5ft 7ins, slim, with short brown hair and stubble. He wears glasses and was dressed in khaki trousers, a black jacket, a black hat and was carrying a small blue/grey rucksack.
