The family of a man who died after being found unconscious on a beach have said they are “devastated beyond belief” at their loss.
Scott Dunn Calder, 23, was found by a member of the public on the beach near a car park at Longniddry Bents in East Lothian.
Emergency services were summoned following the discovery at 7.45am on Sunday, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The 23-year-old had been at the Oktoberfest event at Gosford House the previous evening.
Police said that inquiries are continuing to establish the full circumstances surrounding his death, however there are no suspicious circumstances.
In a statement issued through police, his family said: “The shock and profound loss that we are feeling at this time cannot be put into words.
“Scott was a beloved son, a loving boyfriend and a wonderful friend to all who knew him.
“He had just achieved his masters degree from Edinburgh Napier University and had his whole life ahead of him.
“Every day he made us proud and we are devastated beyond belief that he is gone.
“As a family we will try to support one another through this most difficult of times and ask that our privacy be respected while we grieve.”
The 23-year-old was originally from Glasgow.
Detective Inspector Paul Batten said: “Our deepest sympathies are with Scott’s family and we will provide them with all the necessary support and assistance they may require.
“Our inquiries continue to confirm all of Scott’s movements after leaving the Oktoberfest event and anyone with any relevant information is asked to come forward. “
