A pair of adventurers set out with their climbing rope
to tackle a peak in Glencoe - and ended up being avalanched.
Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team were helped in their efforts to aid the stricken pair by members of Arrochar Mountain Rescue, who were on an exercise near the area where the incident happened on the side of Stob Coire nan Lochan, reports Grough.
The two climbers were swept 1,000 ft down the appropriately named avalanche gully, but one was able to walk down with the rescuers, while the other was stretchered to a waiting helicopter with a possible spinal injury.
Walkers and climbers heading for the mountains in winter conditions may benefit from taking equipment like an ice axe and crampons
, as well as checking the avalanche risk levels before they go.
Stob Coire nan Lochan is an outlier of Bidean nam Bian, the highest mountain in Glencoe at 3,772 ft.
