Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team received a call to help the man who had sustained a lower leg injury while walking the circular path around Stac Pollaidh in Wester Ross.

A total of 19 team members attended.

The casualty was treated, packaged and then stretchered down the hill to the waiting ambulance at the car park.

The crew later posted: "We wish the casualty a speedy recovery. Thanks to all who turned out."
