The emergency services have been called to a beauty spot made famous by the TV series Outlander after a report of a person having fallen.

Roads have been closed on the approach to Finnich Glen near Loch Lomond as police, the fire service, ambulance and a mountain rescue team deal with the incident.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We received a report of concern for a person who had fallen at Finnich Glen, Stirling, around 1.10pm on Sunday, 11 April, 2021.

“Officers are in attendance alongside a mountain rescue team, the fire service and ambulance service.

“The public are asked avoid the area while the incident is ongoing.”

Traffic Scotland said roads closures are in place on the B834 and A809 with motorists asked to avoid the area.

It is estimated around 70,000 people a year visit the glen, known for its 70ft gorge and the Devil’s Pulpit rock.

The site is set for a £2.7million revamp, including a new visitor centre, car park, path network and bridges.
