Police in the Highlands are appealing for information after a break-in at a mountaineering hut.

A member of the Lochaber Mountaineering Club discovered the damage caused by intruders at the Steall Hut in Glen Nevis.

The club member made the discovery on Sunday. It is believed the incident took place some time after the previous Sunday. Although it appears someone had entered the building, nothing was stolen.

Sergeant Deborah McCartney of Police Scotland said: “We appreciate the hut is in a remote location but I would ask any walkers or visitors to Glen Nevis who may have seen anything suspicious to let us know.

“Anyone who may have information can call police on 101, quoting reference NP1741/19, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
