Police have appealed for information after a tent was left, apparently abandoned, in Britain's oldest national nature reserve.

The grey and orange tent was found north west of Loch Coire Mhic Fhearchair in the Beinn Eighe reserve.

Police Scotland hope to trace its owner to make sure they are not in any difficulty.

As many as 50,000 hillwalkers visit the reserve in Wester Ross every year, according to Scottish Natural Heritage.
