The Clachaig Inn in Glencoe has announced it has managed to raise hundreds of pounds for local mountain rescue services through the generosity of visitors.

A figure of £576.64 was compiled through money being left in rescue collection jars, the venue's Facebook page stated, something that may help visitors to the valley who come with their walking boots to explore its mountains.

"Austerity? We'll hear no such thing," it commented, thanking people for their generosity in raising funds for the rescue team.

The Clachaig Inn is located two miles from Glencoe village and is a popular haunt for walkers and climbers, due to its situation close to a number of mountains.

Among these are Sgorr nam Fiannaidh, a 3,173 ft Munro that can be climbed from a path immediately across the road from the pub, at the western end of the famous Aonach Eagach ridge.

Other popular Munros nearby include Bidean nam Bian, the highest in Glencoe at 3,772 ft.
