Climber dies after summit fall
A climber has died after falling at the summit of a mountain in the Highlands.
Glencoe Mountain Rescue team began searching the Bidean Nam Bian peak in Glencoe on Friday after it was reported at around 3.20pm that a man had fallen near the summit.
Rescuers, who were assisted by an RAF helicopter, discovered the body of a 39-year-old man, Northern Constabulary said.
Police said no further information will be released.
The death is the latest in a series of incidents in the Scottish mountains in recent months.
Four people died in Glencoe after being caught up in an avalanche in January.
Another avalanche in the Cairngorms in February claimed the lives of three people, while in the same week a second fatal avalanche killed a hillwalker.
Two climbers were also killed after falling on Ben Nevis.
