Police have found a man’s body which may have been lying in a tent in the Cairngorms for a number of weeks. A local gamekeeper had spotted the tent at the south end of Loch Einich below Sgor Gaoith about a month ago. On Tuesday 9 September, Aviemore police received a further report saying the tent was still in the same location.

Members of the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team, together with Police officers searched the tent and found the body. A police statement said: “The remains will be taken to Inverness for post mortem and enquiries will be ongoing to trace next of kin and to identify the male.”
