The work the John Muir Trust (JMT) is seeking to carry out to preserve the path up the Steall Gorge in Glen Nevis has been explained on a BBC Radio Scotland programme.

Ben Nevis land manager Fran Lockhart told a reporter on the Out of Doors programme bout what the body is seeking to do to prevent serious damage and erosion during a visit to the gorge.

She emphasised the importance of retaining a "wild experience" for visitors, stating: "We don't want to put in a manicured path that people can walk along withot thinking".

Those heading up the gorge in their walking boots will need to be careful where they step as there are some places where it is necessary to tread carefully.

The JMT revealed this week it has now raised £42,000 of the £60,000 it needs to complete the project.

Walkers can use the gorge as a means of accessing several Munros, including those in the eastern Mamores range such as Stob Coire a' Chairn, Na Gruagaichean, Sgurr Eilde Mor, Binnein Beag and Binnein Mor.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801433671-ADNFCR
