A walker was airlifted to hospital after suffering multiple injuries in a fall in the Highlands.

Members of the public who were in the area on the Strathfarrar ridge went to the walker’s aid after the incident on Saturday.

Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team was alerted about 3.30pm.

A team spokesperson said: “The casualty had fallen a substantial distance, perhaps up to 40ft, sustaining multiple injuries as a consequence.

“The casualty was given assistance and first aid by other walkers in the vicinity who also raised the alarm by calling Police Scotland.”

Fifteen volunteers from the Dundonnell went to the scene and the Inverness Coastguard helicopter also flew to the site, several miles west of Beauly. After treatment, the walker was flown to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness.

Dundonnell MRT leader Iain Nesbitt thanked the Coastguard helicopter crew for their assistance, as well as the members of the public who helped the injured walker.
