Sad, but at least they have found him.

Worth noting that Paul Cairney - a well known hillwalker who has contributed a number of pictures for the MBA newsletter and calendar over the years - is also still missing, though he may be anywhere

Missing also is Martin Rhodes, somewhere on Slioch or in the Fisherfield.

As Essan says, at least they have found Stuart Campbell. Very tragic.

Sincere condolences to the gentleman’s family. Very eerie to think all these men have come to harm in a relatively small period of time in that locality.
