Police have appealed for help in identifying a man whose body was found washed up on an Islay beach.

The body was found on Monday 10 April on the beach at Lossit Bay, Portnahaven, on the island.

Officers said he had been in the water for several days before being washed ashore and his death was not being treated as suspicious.

Police released an artist's impression of the man and a description of his clothing and appealed for information.

He is between 45 and 60 years old, about 5ft 9in and of medium build.

The man has a tattoo on each forearm.

He was wearing a blue, beige and white vertical striped cotton jumper, a short sleeved blue and white checked shirt, a black t-shirt and brown lace-up shoes.

The unidentified man also wore a criss-crossed Celtic ring on the middle finger of his right hand.

He may have worn a checked modern style kilt.
