When this group of walkers set off from a bothy in the Cairngorms, they had a specific route in mind.
But that all changed when flooding affected the area and they were forced to head high to get across.
Luckily, they were carrying the right gear so that they were able to face any conditions – but not everyone is so prepared.
The footage, filmed in the Glen Feshie area of the Cairngorms, was released by Mountaineering Scotland in order to highlight the need to be prepared for any conditions.
A spokesman for Mountaineering Scotland said: “The group had been at the bothy but because of the floods they had to go up onto the plateau on the mountain above.
“They were heading to the road at Glen Feshie but they had to go up high to cross.
“The video highlights how you have to be prepared for just about every kind of weather condition when you go out in the winter.
“The plan that day had not been to climb any hills, they were just walking up and down the glen. But circumstances and the weather conspired against them.”
The organisation is also using the video to highlight a series of free winter mountain safety talks.
The latest takes place at Inverness Tiso, Longman Industrial Estate, tonight at 7pm.
There is another talk on February 8 from 7pm at the Aviemore Mountain Cafe, Aviemore and one on February 15 where Ms Morning will be joined by mountain rescue legend David ‘Heavy’ Whalley.
