Three teenage climbers have been rescued by a helicopter from a Munro in Torridon after getting into difficulty.

The 19-year-olds became cragfast - stuck while tackling a route - on 1,055m (3,461ft) Liathach on Tuesday afternoon.

Torridon and Kinlochewe Mountain Rescue Team helped them to a spot from where they could be safely airlifted off the peak by a coastguard helicopter.

The trio were not injured during their ordeal.
