A man has been rescued after getting into difficulty while walking in the Cairngorms.

A major search for the walker, involving Braemar and Aberdeen mountain rescue teams, was launched on Ben Macdui at about 20:00 on Saturday.

The Coastguard helicopter was unable to join the search due to poor weather conditions.

It was later confirmed that the man had been found and taken off the mountain.
