The Lovely couple were flying their PA-28 Piper Cherokee plane from Dundee to the Hebridean isle of Tiree when the aircraft flew into a hillside
A young couple have been killed after their plane crashed into a hill during an Easter trip to visit their family
According to the Telegraph, the couple, Dr Margaret Ann Rous and David Rous, who got married in July 2013, had been reportedly flying from Dundee to the Hebridean island of Tiree to visit relatives when their Piper Cherokee plane crashed.
Their PA-28 Piper Cherokee plane came down on a remote hillside at Bein Nan Lus south of Oban on Saturday afternoon.
An air, land and sea search for the missing aircraft had been launched after it dropped off the radar at 1.50pm.
It led to the grim discovery of the couple’s bodies within the wreckage on the north side of Glen Kinglas, above Loch Etive, six hours later.
Dr Rous’ sister, Johann Maclean, paid tribute to her in a message posted on Facebook, describing her as “my absolute rock”.
Dr Rous, 37, and her 28-year-old husband, a structural engineer, lived in Newport-on-Tay in Fife, just across the river from Dundee.
They had met when he visited Tiree several years ago, married in July 2013 and honeymooned in Venice.
The loss of contact had prompted a multi-emergency response involving the police, ambulance service and the coastguard.
Inquiries are continuing into the cause of the accident although weather is thought to have been a factor with poor visibility at the time of the crash.
