A Birmingham man was rescued from the top of one of Scotland's highest mountains after being trapped for a night in freezing conditions.
Chris Elliot, aged 54, and another man, Glenn Walters, were winched to safety by an RAF rescue team.
It happened after Mr Elliot and Mr Walters had been climbing the south side of the 3456ft Liathach, the highest summit in the Torridan range, in Western Ross.
Mountain rescuers said the pair became trapped between two fast flowing rivers in a treacherous area known as the Pinnacles.
They used their mobile phones to call the emergency services and the Torridon and Kinlochwe Rescue Team then set off to locate the pair.
