The funeral of a former Fettes College pupil who died in a 2,000ft fall in the Canadian Rockies will be held this week.

Neil MacKenzie, 31, died alongside two women while ice climbing on Mount Joffre, British Columbia, on January 11.

He worked at the Roslin Institute until last year, when he moved to the University of British Columbia to take up a post-doctoral position.

His funeral will be held at Inverness crematorium on Friday.

In a statement, Mr MacKenzie’s family said: “We are devastated but will hold on to the fact that Neil was doing what he loved.”
