Lachlan Macdonald is thought to have lost his balance and fell from the Forcan Ridge on The Saddle, a munro in the Highlands.

The Daily Record writes that friends and family said the 46-year-old enthusiastic hillwalker and Hearts fan died “doing what he loved,” prompting a deluge of condolences.

The tributes on social media were spearheaded by his friend Louise E. Strutt. Lachlan Macdonald, a member of our hillwalking families, was tragically killed in an accident on the Forcan Ridge, the woman said, adding that it had taken her all day to even be able to write this.

“My big Jambo pal is gone and my days on our beautiful countries mountains will never be the same.

“A man who could light up a hillside in seconds. Your love, compassion and ability to bring out the best in every situation. Love you to the munros and back my friend.”

Sophie McKenna said: “Rest easy big guy, you were truly one in a million and I’ll miss you forever. My heart’s shattered.”

Allan Clacher said: “RIP Lachlan Macdonald. I’ll remember the laughs we shared and the early morning I was your knight in shining armour and rescued you whilst wandering aimlessly in Pollokshaws Rd. You sir were a gem of a guy. Fly high brother.”

Neil Jeffrey said: “Good night and sleep tight Lachlan Macdonald, you are in a very nice place now R.I.P.”

Following the tragedy on September 17 at around noon, a fundraising has been organised to assist Lachlan’s family with funeral expenses.

It is with a very heavy heart that I wish to notify you that our only son Lachlan lost his life after falling from a mountain near Clunnie, according to a statement on the website from his mother Margaret.

“He was doing what he loved best – climbing the mountains. We just can’t believe what has happened to our gorgeous boy.

“He was an amazing dad to Alannah, brother to Karen, uncle to wee Calum and son to Calum and myself and words can’t express how we feel.”

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We were made aware of a 46-year-old man having fallen while walking on The Saddle in Kintail around 12pm on Saturday, September 17.

“His body was subsequently found and recovered with the assistance of the HM Coastguard helicopter and the Kintail and Glenelg mountain rescue teams.

“There are no suspicious circumstances and a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.”
