A man was airlifted from a Scottish mountain after falling about 300ft.

The climber was on Buachaille Etive Mòr in Glencoe this morning when he fell while on a traverse from Crowberry Gully to Curved Ridge.

Emergency services were alerted about 10.55am and Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team found the man and treated him at the scene.

He had suffered leg, arm and shoulder injuries in the 90m fall.

A Sea King helicopter from HMS Gannet in Ayrshire flew to the site and airlifted the injured climber to Fort William, where an ambulance took him the short distance to Belford Hospital.

Police said the man’s injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
