Two bridges at the foot of Ben Nevis are now open to the public.
A new river crossing at the popular Glen Nevis Visitor Centre, Fort William, has been completed and will be well used by many of the 120,000 people who climb to the top of the mountain each year.
Also now open is the upgraded bridge at the Glen Nevis youth hostel as well as the all-abilities riverside path between the visitor centre and hostel.
Access to Ben Nevis is now available via all established routes, although there will be restrictions on the link path between Monday and Friday next week to allow reinstatement works to be completed by the contractor.
The old bridge, located downstream, is now closed and is in the process of being removed.
The joint project by Highland Council and Nevis Landscape Partnership, was funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Scottish Rural Development Programme, Sport Scotland as well as the council.
In addition to investment in the bridge, the council is also spending £35,000 refurbishing the popular visitor centre, which it owns. This will provide new and informative displays including vital mountain safety information.
It is hoped there will be a formal opening ceremony of the new facilities in June.
