A helicopter has been drafted in to assist in curbing the spread of a wildfire near Kishorn in Wester Ross.
The helicopter arrived this afternoon to assist firefighters who have been tackling the blaze since Monday afternoon, with seven crews in total rushing to the scene from distant areas of the Highlands.
Appliances from Kyle of Lochalsh, Torridon, Applecross, Lochcarron, Broadford and Dingwall had been in attendance at the blaze alongside a command unit from Inverness, with around 50 firefighters and officers involved.
Late into the evening there were still four appliances at the scene, with the fire spread having been contained earlier in the day.
The operation is being coordinated from Achintraid, near Kishorn.
Earlier today the fire possessed a front of more than five miles, however, after breaking it into sections, firefighters managed to curb it to one area.
The helicopter has been collecting water from a nearby loch and waterbombing the fire.
Crews from Applecross and Torridon initially attended the blaze after a call out at 4.20pm on Monday afternoon.
At that stage, the area affected was around half a mile.
By midnight the fire, thought to have started in a field, had spread over a distance of two miles, but some two hours later had spread to a range of five miles.
Four relief crews were on the hill fighting the blaze in the early hours of this morning, joined by locals determined to fend off the fire from reaching residential properties.
An all-terrain vehicle from Inverness has also been drafted in.
Crews remain on scene.
