Detective Sergeant Louise Thewlis, of Aviemore Police Office, said: “Extensive police enquiries are continuing to identify this man.

"Despite our investigations, we have not been able to establish who he is, and we are appealing to the public for any assistance so we can notify his next-of-kin.

"I would urge anyone who recognises his description to please come forward.

"I’m also appealing for witnesses who may have been in the local area in the past week.

"Alternatively, if you have concerns about a male family member or friend who matches this description, and has not been in contact, then please let us know."
