Mountain rescue teams have been making fresh searches for a hillwalker missing in the north west Highlands since the weekend.

Eric Cyl, 62, was last seen heading off into the Mamore mountain range near Fort William on Saturday morning.

Police were contacted on Sunday when he failed to return.

Lochaber and Glencoe Mountain Rescue teams have been searching in an area known as Ring of Steall and Steall Falls.

Mr Cyl, from England, who was walking alone, was last seen wearing a light grey jacket and dark trousers and was carrying two walking poles.

Searches on Monday had to be stood down because of bad weather.
