A series of "hobbit houses" that wintersports fans can stay in on-site have been constructed by the Glencoe Ski Resort.

The bunkhouses - each of which sleep up to four people - are among the new developments at the site ahead of the new season.

Wintersports fans heading for the slopes with their ski equipment and thermals will also be able to eat and enjoy apres ski fun at the base station cafe until 22:30 GMT each evening.

Beginners will also be catered for with a shorter work to the nursery slopes due to a repositioned tow, while these slopes will also be more certain of a good covering thanks to the arrival of a snow cannon.

The Glencoe resort is located on the sides of Beinn a'Bhuird, a 3,615 ft Munro that visitors to the area may wish to take on in a winter climb.

People trying this with their crampons and winter jackets may make it a 'two towers' walk, combining it with its neighbour Creise, which is 3,609 ft high.
