"We have no further comment and we ask that the family's privacy is respected at this time", Jesper Stubkier, the communications manager for Holch Povlsen's wholesale clothing business, Bestseller, told the Press Association.

It is now unknown which of his three children have died.

"It is a project that we know can not be realised in our lifetime, which will bear fruit not just for our own children, but also for the generations of visitors who, like us, hold a deep affection the Scottish Highlands", Mr Holch Povlsen and his wife Anne say on the website.

Anders, 46, and his wife Anne have not confirmed which of their three children died in the bombing.
