A wire bridge on a popular walking route has been repaired and reopened after a group of people overloaded it and snapped a cable.

The crossing at Steall in Glen Nevis has been closed since May.

It provides a link to Steall bothy and Mamores hills and is used by walkers and mountain rescue teams.

Conservation charity the John Muir Trust said the bridge provided a safe crossing when the Water of Nevis was in spate.
