A body has been recovered from Glen Nevis in the Highlands by police and the local mountain rescue team.
Officers were called to a report of a deceased person on the glen in Lochaber, Fort William, at around 2pm on Saturday.
Efforts are now being made to establish the identity of the deceased.
It is understood that the body was not found as part of an ongoing search.
Chief inspector Alastair Garrow said: "The body was recovered in a remote location and had clearly been there for some considerable time.
"We will obviously be considering all options in terms of longer-term missing people who have sadly not been found yet.
"These operations can be challenging and I would like to thank all those who assisted in recovering the body sensitively and safely."
