Searches are currently underway to locate two missing hillwalkers in the Achnashellach area of Strathcarron in Wester Ross.

Brothers Alan Gibson (56) and Neil Gibson (63) set off on a hill walk at around 7.45am on Thursday and were reported missing late last night when they failed to return.

It is understood that they were planning to walk in the area of Achnashellach and have a black Pointer dog called Archie with them.

Land and air searches are currently being carried out by members of the Torridon Mountain Rescue Team, Kintail Mountain Rescue Team, RAF Mountain Rescue Team, SARDA dogs and the Coastguard helicopter.

Anyone who was in the area yesterday and recalls seeing two men should call police on 101 quoting reference 4089.
