The body of the man was found alongside the body of a dog, now confirmed to be that of Bane.

Police said the bodies were found at 2:15pm on Saturday, a full week after the pair, from West Yorkshire, arrived in the Highlands to go walking on February 18.

Authorities have reported that the circumstances of the deaths do not appear to be suspicious and they have been reported to the procurator fiscal.

It is understood that it had been Mr Sambrook’s intention to make the 1,022m climb up Buachaille Etive Mòr.

He is also understood to have been planning to go wild camping in the Glencoe.

Rescue volunteers from Glencoe, Lochaber, Oban and RAF mountain rescue team all assisted in the mission to find Mr Sambrook when he didn’t return from the trip.
