A 19-year-old walker who was airlifted to Raigmore Hospital on Monday (23 January) after a fall in the Gairloch area has sadly died in hospital. Craig Cathie, 19, from Moodiesburn, near Glasgow was walking in a group of 16 in the Flowerdale Estate area of Gairloch when he fell between 20 and 30 feet and sustained a head injury.

Next of kin have been informed and, as is normal in these circumstances, a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
