Two men have appeared in court charged with the murder of a teenager in the Western Isles.

Liam Aitchison, 16, was found dead in a derelict building in the Steinish area on the outskirts of Stornoway on Lewis almost two weeks ago.

Jonathan Mackinnon, 21, from Stornoway, and 20-year-old Stefan Miller, from Carloway, appeared in private at Inverness Sheriff Court.

They made no plea or declaration and were remanded in custody.

Liam's body was found a week after he had been reported missing.
