Search efforts have been initiated for a missing hillwalker who potentially became “disoriented” while hiking on the Isle of Rum. Enthusiastic trekker Mary Molloy, 68, was last observed walking in the region between Trollabhal and Bealach an Fhuarain around 2.30pm on Saturday. She subsequently contacted her family roughly at 6.30pm, however, Police Scotland mentioned it is uncertain where she was at that moment on the Inner Hebridean isle. The authority suspects Ms Molloy was endeavoring to return to the Dibidil vicinity and “might have become disoriented”. Officials are becoming “increasingly worried” for her well-being.

Inspector Graham Brown remarked: “Mary is an avid hillwalker but based on what we’ve been informed, she might have become disoriented and didn’t follow her intended path. We have specialized teams, including mountain rescue units, a helicopter, and search dogs, in the locale but we also require the public’s assistance with any information.”
