A walker has been rescued from a Scottish mountain after blizzard conditions forced them to shelter in a snow hole to keep warm.
Members of Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team battled heavy snow in darkness to reach the woman.
She had become stranded between the 3,770ft Bidean nam Bian and 3,517ft Stob Coire Sgreamhach in Glen Coe.
The woman was walking with her partner – who managed to descend and then raise the alarm by mobile phone at around 6pm on Wednesday – when she was overcome by the conditions.
The Inverness-based Coastguard search and rescue helicopter was unable to reach the woman because of the weather conditions.
Eight members of Glencoe MRT subsequently scaled more than 1,600 feet to reach the hiker and help her off the mountain.
