Volunteers sought for Model T on Ben Nevis effort

Volunteers have been sought to dismantle a vintage car and reassemble it on the summit of Ben Nevis.

The effort will be held during a week-long Model T Ford rally in Lochaber in May.

Landscape conservation charity, the John Muir Trust, which owns the mountain, have agreed to allow the Model T Ford on the peak.

In 1911, a Model T was driven to the summit in a publicity stunt by a Ford selling agents in Edinburgh.

To commemorate the event, a car will be dismantled at Achintee, near Fort William, and the parts carried to the summit before being taken apart again.
