With fewer than forty days to go to the start of the Olympics a group of Highland pensioners have risen to their very own personal challenge.
Members of Alvie and Insh Church in Kincraig have enjoyed an afternoon's zip line adventure in a nearby estate.
The church members raise money annually for Aids nurses at a hospital in Uganda, and this year decided to undertake the death-defying challenge at Alvie Estate.
Zip lining involves being attached to a high-wire suspended in the air and using gravity to slide down the wire. The line at Alvie starts 100ft above the ground and ends at a height of 70ft.
The oldest participant in Tuesday's even was 90-year-old Anne Williamson.
Ms Williamson said younger members of her family had already tried zip lining. She added: "I've seen photographs of my great-grandchildren smiling, so I guess I might smile as well. I have no idea what it'll feel like, but I'm for it."
Fellow fundraiser Muriel Berkeley said: "I've just taken up kayaking, and that's exciting enough, but being in mid-air is a bit scary."
The event organisers have dubbed the group 'senior zipizens' and say they have been impressed by their enthusiasm for the challenge.
Nick Etheridge of G2 Outdoor said: "They're a lot more able-bodied than I'd anticipated. They're a very active bunch of ladies."
