Veteran mountaineer Doug Scott will be one of the star attractions at a Hebridean mountain festival.
A challenge walk linking five of the island’s peaks will also be on offer during the Isle of Harris Mountain Festival, with a free dram of whisky available for all those who complete the route.
The festival is being run again after the success of last year’s inaugural event. Mr Scott, who has summited Everest and numerous other major peaks, will deliver a talk on Big Wall Climbs.
Other activities include the Reinigeadal Hill Race, a golden eagle guided walk, a walk along a former coffin route, and photographic workshops by Laurie Campbell.
Visitors can also sample coasteering climbing and kayaking and there are social events including a traditional ceilidh.
Organisers said: “This is an opportunity to explore the unique landscapes of Harris, characterised by rugged hills, white sandy beaches and turquoise seas.
“The interior of North and South Harris encompass some of the largest un-roaded areas of wild land in Scotland, offering limitless possibilities for walking and exploring.
“Harris has an extensive path network with around 45 miles of paths. North Harris also holds the highest peaks in the Western Isles including An Cliseam, while South Harris hosts some of the most spectacular white sandy beaches in the world.
“Harris is also the home of Harris Tweed and has a strong Gaelic culture.”
The festival is organised by the North Harris Trust and has received support from the John Muir Trust, Scottish Natural Heritage and the Leader regeneration scheme.
More details of the festival, which starts on Saturday 15 September, are on the event’s website.
