A man tumbled while descending the path from Bealach Coire na Banachdich earlier this week.

The man had just successfully climbed the Inaccessible Pinnacle.

The tumble resulted in the man seriously injuring his back.

22 members of the Skye Mountain Rescue team assisted the man.

The team stated: "After a tricky stretcher carry through the clag we were all happy to see our colleagues from HM Coastguard R948 below the cloud base.

"We transferred the injured man into the helicopter which then flew him to hospital."
