Police Scotland have appealed for information following the discovery of a tent, apparently abandoned, in the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve.
The grey and orange tent was found to the northwest of Loch Coire Mhic Fhearchair, and the police are keen to locate the owner and establish if they're safe and well.
A forum user on this site has reported seeing it at the beginning of the week, when it contained only a sleeping bag and mat: see here.
Anyone with information should get in touch with Police Scotland.
Update 29/07/13: Good news. Local police tell us the tent's owner has been located safe and well.
