A man has died after falling on Beinn Eighe in Torridon. It is understood that the party of 4 spent the night on the mountain and that one man fell, sustaining head injuries, and two female companions became stuck on a ledge. A fourth man managed to raise the alarm and the Torridon Mountain Rescue Team and the Stornaway Coastguard helicopter were sent to the scene early this morning. Sadly it was found that the man had died of his injuries and the helicopter recovered his body along with the two women who are understood not to be badly injured.

The identity of the dead man has now been confirmed by Police as James Turner, 75, from Buxton in Derbyshire.
