Fallen climber named by police
Bookmark and Share
A climber who died after a fall in the Scottish Highlands has been named by police as 65-year-old Tom Clark from Aberdeen.

Mr Clark suffered the accident while up one of the mountains above the Cluanie Inn in Glen Shiel.

The wider circumstances of the accident have not been disclosed, but those who are heading up to the mountains with a climbing rope may wish to take extra precautions in the colder autumn weather, not least as some areas of the Highlands are now experiencing snowfall.

In addition to having the right footwear and climbing gear, warm jackets may help to prevent exposure to cold, particularly in the event of an accident when people have to wait to be rescued instead of being able to get down the mountain by themselves.

The Glen Shiel area is well known for its high concentration of Munros, such as Aonach Air Crith, Sgurr a'Bhealaich Dearg and Saileag.
