Police have named the woman who died while going to find help for her daughter after an incident on the mountainside.
Police said the woman who died in Glen Coe this week was Rebekah Caroline Pettifer, 52, from the Northamptonshire area.
Ms Pettifer, who was known as Caroline, was recovered from an area close to a path leading towards Buachaille Etive Beag in Glen Coe on Monday. It is understood that Ms Pettifer had previously lived in Kinlochleven.
Walkers in the area raised the alarm when they found a young woman cold, dazed and barely conscious on an early part of the path leading up to the ridge between Glen Coe and Glen Etive.
She mumbled something about another person, perhaps her mum, being on the hillside.
The 23-year-old woman, was taken to the Belford Hospital in Fort William for treatment.
Meanwhile, police co-ordinated a search and rescue of the area. Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team were joined by Joint Services Mountain Rescue Ballachulish, a group of staff and students who were training in the area, to cover the large search area.
The Coastguard Search and Rescue Helicopter was also helping with the search.
Ms Pettifer was spotted by the Coastguard Search and Rescue Helicopter between 2pm and 3pm. She had suffered from a medical episode and fallen off the path into a small hollow.
Sergeant Ross McCartney said: “Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this tragic incident.
“I would like to thank Glencoe MRT and HM Coastguard for their invaluable assistance with this challenging incident.”
There are no suspicious circumstances relating to Ms Pettifer’s death and a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
