The funeral of an Inverness mountain instructor who died in hospital after falling from a Wester Ross mountain will take place next week.
Jonathan Trafford, 57, died on Monday in Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, more than two weeks after falling 200ft down a slope from Beinn Alligin in Torridon.
Earlier this week tributes were paid to Mr Trafford, with his employers Boots N Paddles issuing a statement describing him as a “true gentleman” who was passionate about the outdoors.
He was on holiday in the area when he fell, and had been walking with his wife when the accident happened.
He was airlifted to hospital on September 14 and remained there in a critical condition after suffering injuries to his head, chest and legs in the fall.
He died in hospital on Tuesday as a result of his injuries.
Mr Trafford, who lived in the Inverness area, worked as a senior instructor for the outdoor guide company.
His funeral will take place at 12pm next Thursday in Inverness Crematorium. All are welcome to attend.
The family have asked for no mourning clothing at Mr Trafford’s request.
No flowers are requested but any donations made at the service will go to the intensive care unit at Raigmore Hospital and the Coastguard Association, or forwarded to funeral directors D. Chisholm & Sons.
