Bomb experts have carried out a controlled explosion in the Highlands after a World War II mortar was discovered.
Emergency services were called to the scene at around 8.50am on Tuesday after the device was discovered as part of ongoing forestry survey work on land belonging to Cawdor Estates near Reareach Hill, Glengeoullie.
Police set up a cordon with the closest home around one mile from the scene.
Ministry of Defence bomb disposal experts confirmed the device was a WWII weapon.
Inspector Murdo MacLeod said "Discoveries such as this are common in this area where there were a number of ranges in operation during the Second World War.
"As is standard practice, a cordon was placed around the area and following the assessment and attendance of the MoD, a controlled explosion was carried out without incident.
“I would like to remind members of the public that these mortars are very unstable and any such find should be reported to police without delay."
