Police probe launched after human remains found near village

Police have launched an investigation after human remains were found in a rural area.

The discovery was made near the village of Arrochar in Argyll and Bute yesterday.

Police Scotland said that inquiries are at a very early stage and the remains will undergo further examination.

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.
