Walker in death fall.
Alex Nugent, 42, of Barrhill Road, Kirkintilloch, was descending Sgurr a Chuilinn south of Glenshiel with his brother-in-law when he slipped and fell.
Willie Fraser of the Kintail rescue team said: "The part they were on has rough rocky ledges and he simply slipped and fell. It was dark by the time we managed to get the man's body off the hill."
In a separate mountain accident, a member of the armed forces was airlifted to Belford Hospital, Fort William, before being transferred to the Southern General in Glasgow, after falling 60ft while climbing on Ben Nevis.
Another climber used a mobile phone to alert the emergency services.
