Repairs have been completed to a footpath in one of Skye's most famous landscapes.

The route takes walkers over the Quiraing in Staffin.

The Quiraing is part of the Trotternish Ridge which was formed by a series of massive ancient landslips. The Quiraing was the largest of the slips.

Filming of scenes for the latest in the Transformers movies, The Last Knight, which is to be released in 2017, took place there earlier this year.

Scenes for 2015's Macbeth were also filmed around The Quiraing.

The landscape also featured in previews of Microsoft's operating system Windows 10.

Staffin Community Trust worked with staff from tour operator Rabbie's Trail Burners Ltd on the repair project.
