On Monday over 70 rescue team, police and RAF search team members scoured the Glenfeshie area looking for Mr Davies, who was reported missing on Sunday after failing to return from his day walk the day before. Mr Davies was an experienced hillwalker but was not equipped for a night out in the hills. He was accompanied by his Yorkshire terrier.
The RAF helicopter located the body at the bottom of a gully known as Fuaran Diotach a little way east of the summit of Carn Ban Mor. It is one of a number of steep sided gullies that drop towards Loch Einich. Rescuers reported that Mr Davies might have gone to try and rescue his dog, which was found dead near the body, after it got into difficulties.
