Searches for dog swept over waterfall near Fort William

More than 20 people have been helping to look for a dog that has been missing since Saturday after being swept over a waterfall.

Angus Curran’s springer spaniel, Angus, was being walked by a friend when the accident happened at Lower Falls in Glen Nevis, near Fort William.

A trained sniffer dog picked up what Mr Curran believes was Angus’ scent near a croft close to the falls’ car park.

Divers and drone pilots have been among the volunteers looking for the dog.

He got Angus while working as a gamekeeper.

Mr Curran said: “I was amazed that on Wednesday we had 20 plus people show up and help with the search.”We have had divers in the water to check he is not pinned or trapped in the river.”

    So sad to read on BBC red button that Angus has gone on ahead. RIP handsome boy.

    Please be mindful of fast-flowing streams, rivers, deep water, steep banks etc and steer clear or fit a buoyancy aid.
