He's already a hero to many but now it seems that Portree superdog Blaze is getting plenty of celebrity backing.

Just weeks after singer Eddie Reader backed the local canine's canny fund-raising calendar the latest high profile backer is none other than Outlander heart throb Sam Heughan or as he is better known to his millions of fans, Jamie.

Money from Blaze's latest mountain top efforts, he is pictured on some of Skye and Scotland's iconic high places, is going to Skye Mountain Rescue Team with £2,000 plus already in the bank.

Blaze and his specially signed copy

Now though Blaze's owner Steve has put Sam's signed copy up for sale on eBay and already it has attracted bids.

On his listing Steve says: "Here we have a Blaze Mountain Rescue calendar signed by Sam Heughan, who plays Jamie in Outlander of course.

"The calendar was signed during filming of Series 3 of Outlander and was given to Sam to autograph by our friend Ryan Fletcher who is also in Series 3.

"We have been selling our calendars in aid of Skye Mountain Rescue, and have already raised over £2,000, so every little bit helps. Thanks for bidding. Nollaig Chridheil agus Bliadhna Mhath Ur."
