A 20 year old hillwalker was rescued by Skye Mountain Rescue.

The rescue operation began on Monday night and finished in the early hours of Tuesday.

10 members of the MRT spent "a long night and a couple of hairy drives along a coastal track" in order to rescue the man from the snowy peaks.

The MRT thanked local police and Skye base camp "for ensuring the rescued man is going to get a warm bed rather than spending the night in the snow with the ptarmigan.
