Those who like to go walking
on the Scottish mountains need to be well equipped as the autumn weather strikes, police have said.
The Tayside force has said people should be well-equipped for going out on the hills, with the right clothing and Ordnance Survey maps
to help navigate.
It said a number of recent call-outs by mountain rescue have occurred because people are not taking these precautions and said there is plenty walkers and climbers can do to prevent themselves getting into trouble.
One tip it gave was to be aware of the avalanche risk as the winter weather arrives.
While much of Britain enjoyed unseasonally warm sunshine last week, the first winter snows have now fallen on the Scottish mountains.
Cairngorm Mountain, the company that runs the mountain's ski resort, has said there has been "quite a dusting" of snow in the last 24 hours.
Warm winter jackets and walking trousers
may be useful as the weather gets colder.
