Aviemore musher John Stewart leads Gichigami Express

A professional sled dog racer from the Highlands has been leading a three-day race in the US.

The 28-year-old from Aviemore races for a Canadian team.

However, he developed his sled dog racing skills in Scotland where his parents run the Cairngorm Sled Dog Centre.
