Three people have appeared in court accused of murdering an oil worker found dead at an Angus beauty spot.
Tasmin Glass, 19, Callum Davidson, 23, and Steven Dickie, 23, all from Kirriemuir, made a brief appearance in private on petition before Sheriff Jillian Martin-Brown at Forfar late on Monday afternoon.
All three appeared in private on petition accused of the 27-year-old’s murder.
Davidson and Dickie also faced three charges of breach of the peace while Davidson faced an additional charge of assault.
There was a heavy police presence when they arrived at the court from custody earlier in the afternoon.
All three made no plea to the charges during brief separate hearings.
Sheriff Jillian Martin-Brown continued their cases for further examination and remanded all three in custody meantime.
They are expected to appear in court again next week.
The suspects were arrested on Thursday.

A no-fly zone around the nature reserve was lifted on Friday.
Police continue to maintain a high profile presence in the town.
Glass, Davidson and Dickie were charged in connection with the murder on Friday.
