Rescuers went to the aid of a family on the hills overlooking Loch Lomond after the mother slipped and injured her leg.
Lomond Mountain Rescue Team was called out yesterday when the family, who were visiting the area from Brazil, strayed on to a steep, muddy, wet path on Conic Hill.
A spokesperson for the team said: “The mother slipped, heard a crack and suspected a broken ankle.”
The Scottish Ambulance Service contacted Central Scotland Police to request the mountain rescuers’ help to stretcher the casualty to the road near Balmaha and the awaiting ambulance.
The callout ended at 1.15pm.
