A hill walker has died after a fall on Ben Nevis.

The man was descending the mountain, Britain's highest peak, when he slipped from a tourist path and fell into a steep gully at about 22:00 on Friday.

Lochaber Mountain Rescue team was alerted and found the man in the ravine. He had sustained fatal injuries.

A spokesman for Northern Constabulary said a report would be sent to the procurator fiscal.

Details of the man's age and nationality have not yet been released.
