A climber was airlifted to hospital after falling in the Highlands this afternoon.

Police at Fort William were alerted about 2pm after the man fell while climbing with two others near Loch Treig. He suffered head injuries in the incident.

The crew of a Sea King helicopter from RAF Lossiemouth found the party of climbers and airlifted the injured man from the hillside.

He was taken to Belford Hospital in Fort William where he is receiving treatment for his injuries.

A spokesperson for Northern Constabulary said his details were not being released. His condition is not known.

Loch Treig, south of Glen Spean, is remote from roads, with just the West Highland railway line passing along its shore, between Corrour and Tulloch stations.
