The force said that there was nothing to suggest the discovery is connected to the death of missing book-keeper Suzanne Pilley, who disappeared in 2010.

David Gilroy was convicted in March 2012 for the murder of Ms Pilley, his former lover and work colleague.

The 38-year-old's body has never been found.
