Those who like to don their hiking boots and work off a bit of excess fat may find that the sugary treats responsible for weight gain over Easter are helping to pave the way to burning it off.
Cadbury's has donated £10,000 to the National Trust for the Scotland footpath repair project in the Scottish highlands, which is aimed at improving routes in Glencoe, Torridon and up Ben Lomond.
The move follows a series of Easter egg trails being laid on by the firm in conjunction with the trust across Scotland.
Commenting on the move, property manager in Glencoe Scott McCombie said: "This contribution will make a real difference to the vital conservation work that's required to keep our mountain path network up to standard."
Those looking to take advantage of the trails in Scotland may wish to stock up on walking gear
at the Go Outdoors stores in Clydebank or Cumbernauld.
Glencoe's mountains include famous peaks such as Buchaille Etive Mor, Bidean Nam Bian and the Pap of Glencoe, as well as the narrow Aonach Eagach ridge.
