Three hillwalkers who had been missing overnight in Perthshire have been found by mountain rescue volunteers.

The men had failed to return from a walk on Ben Vorlich, to the south of Loch Earn.

Tayside Police said three mountain rescue teams, assisted by search dogs, traced them shortly after 05:00 on Sunday.

The walkers had taken shelter and were described as being "safe and well, but cold".
