Ochils Mountain Rescue Team, one of three MRTs involved in the search for the walker, said weather conditions overnight were "horrendous".

Also on Tuesday, a woman was helped to safety by Cairngorm MRT after getting lost on Braeriach in the Cairngorms.

In the Ben More rescue, Killin MRT called on Ochils and Lomond MRT for assistance in its search for the injured walker, who was airlifted to hospital.
