Police and mountain rescue have recovered a body from Glen Nevis in the Highlands.
The alert was raised at about 14:00 on Saturday that a body had been discovered.
Inquiries are ongoing to establish the identity of the person found. It is not known if it is a man or a woman.
Ch Insp Alastair Garrow said: “The body was recovered in a remote location and had clearly been there for some considerable time.”
He added: “We will obviously be considering all options in terms of long-term missing people who have sadly not been found yet.
“These operations can be challenging and I would like to thank all those who assisted in recovering the body sensitively and safely.”
