A website giving walkers and climbers locations of where deer stalking takes place has been launched as a pilot project.
The service is in addition to the Hillphones scheme run by Scottish Natural Heritage and Mountaineering Council of Scotland.
The new website covers 13 estates across Scotland.
Hillphones provides recorded messages on where stalking is happening so walkers can avoid the areas.
Author and hillwalker Cameron McNeish has welcomed the website's launch.
He said: "As a keen walker myself, I understand the need for responsible access on the hills.
"This pilot website will help this to happen and builds on the success of the Hillphones service."
