A competition held on indoor climbing walls on Saturday raised more than £600 for Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team in Lochaber.

The team has been trying to raise £50,000 for an extension to its base in Glencoe village to provide a new secure store for members' equipment.

Last year, the team's store was broken into and kit was stolen.

Many of the UK's top climbers contested the Scottish Mixed Masters competition at the Ice Factor in Kinlochleven.
