A 75-year-old has appeared in court charged with the murder of a man who was found dead on a track near Aberfeldy in February.

David Campbell appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court on Monday, charged with the murder of Brian Low, 65.

Low’s body was found on a track in Pitilie, near Aberfeldy, Perth and Kinross, on February 17.

It was not realised until a post-mortem examination six days later, however, that he had been shot.

The BBC reported that Low's death certificate states that he had suffered a shotgun wound to the neck and chest.

Low had retired from his job as a groundsman at the Edradynate Estate in 2023.

Campbell, of Perth and Kinross, was charged with murder and with attempting to defeat the ends of justice.

He made no plea in court and was committed for further examination. He remains in custody.

He is due to appear in court again within the next eight days.
