Police Scotland, which is co-ordinating the hunt for the overdue walker, said an “extensive search” - involving two helicopters and four mountain rescue teams - in the Buachaille Etive Mor area has so far failed to find any trace of the missing man.

The man, in his 60s, is also said to be an experienced climber, but failed to return home on Tuesday night.
