The BBC report that the hillwalker who had been reported missing overnight in the Kintail area has been found injured by the RAF Kinloss Mountain Rescue team. He was unconcious.

The walker had failed to return last night from a hike and has now been airlifted to the Belford hospital in Fort William. Three mountain rescue teams, as well as the RAF, coastguard, police and search dogs were involved in the search.

An RAF spokesman said “Everything possible was done to get the man to hospital as quickly as possible. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.”
