Those heading for the Scottish Highlands with their winter jackets
have been advised to be aware that a bothy they might wish to stay in has been damaged by recent stormy weather.
According to the Mountain Bothies Association (MBA), the hut at Culra has suffered damage, meaning its north roof cannot be used at present.
It said this could affect those out in winter conditions as demand for use of the bothy is expected to be high over the Christmas and new year period.
The bothy lies south of the village of Dalwhinnie in the central Highlands and can be used for climbing the popular Munro Ben Alder.
Meanwhile, the MBA is seeking to find out how a cannonball came to be located in the vicinity of the Glengarry Bothy.
The organisation said a naval historian has remained the ordinance and confirmed it dates from between the 17th and 19th centuries.
