A team of drone pilots has formally joined Scottish Mountain Rescue (SMR).
Search and Rescue Aerial Association Scotland (SARAA-Scotland) supported a search for a missing person in East Lothian in September.
Following a vote at the SMR's AGM, the association became a full member shortly after the East Lothian incident.
An RAF team, two Search and Rescue Dog Association teams and three Police Scotland teams are also members.
SMR's other members include Aberdeen, Arran, Braemar, Borders, Dundonnell, Oban and Skye MRTs.
