A large landslide has covered part of the Steall Gorge footpath in Lochaber.

Rocks weighing in excess of 40 tonnes are believed to have fallen on to the popular walking route on Tuesday night.

The landslide came down from the hill Meall Cumhann, according to Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team.

A ranger was expected to make an inspection of the slip on Wednesday and assess how badly it has affected the path.
