Walkers and climbers heading for the hills in the Highlands are being warned by police not to leave valuables on view in their vehicles.

The plea comes after two vehicles were broken into on the Ski Road at Aviemore yesterday. Property was stolen in the incidents, which happened at different car parks on the road, which leads from the town to the ski centre on Cairn Gorm.

The road is used in summer by walkers and climbers heading for the mountains around Glenmore Forest and Rothiemurchus, as well as the Cairngorms.

A spokesperson for Northern Constabulary said: “The police would like to remind the public not to leave valuables in unattended vehicles, and where this is not possible, to remove valuable items from sight.”

Anyone who may have information about the thefts, or who might have seen anything suspicious, is asked to contact the police on 01479 810222 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The thefts are believed to have taken place between 10.30am and 12.55pm yesterday, Saturday.
