Oban MRT were called out at 1:00am on Saturday morning to assist, but stood down en route when conditions proved clear enough for a helicopter. He was flown to the Belford Hospital in Fort William but pronounced dead on arrival.

Donald Tiso was the son of Graham, who founded the Tiso chain in 1962.
