Two climbers killed in Glen Coe

Two men have died while climbing in Glen Coe in the Scottish Highlands.

Police were alerted by two other climbers who found the bodies on Stob Coire nam Beith at 16:25 on Saturday.

Officers directed Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team to the scene and the bodies of the two men were located at about 18:55.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Sadly, the two climbers were found to be deceased. Further details will be released when available.”

The leader of the mountain rescue team, Andy Nelson, said an investigation was under way to check for any sign of an avalanche.

Mr Nelson told BBC Scotland: “The guys were roped together so it’s possible they were still on the climb, but they’ve clearly fallen some distance.

“My information is that they’ve been killed instantly by the fall.

“They had all the relevant equipment, were well-equipped, and there’s nothing to suggest that they were ill-equipped or inexperienced.”
