Firefighters have rescued a woman who fell onto rocks at the hermitage at Dunkeld.
Four fire appliances and one heavy rescue unit were sent to the scene to help the 65-year-old after she fell around 15ft at around 1.15pm on Tuesday.
Firefighters were able to reach the woman using specialised equipment and she was taken to an ambulance by a stretcher.
Scott Beedie, watch manager for Tayside Fire and Rescue at Perth, said: "The woman had lost her footing and fallen down the embankment between Ossian's Hall and a footbridge close to the waterfall there. The area where she had fallen was quite slippery and dangerous.
"We were able to rappel down to where she was using restraining equipment and a wrap-around stretcher was used to lift her up."
He added that crews attended from Pitlochry, Dunkeld and Perth.
It was understood the woman was taken by hospital to Perth Royal Infirmary suffering from head and pelvic injuries.
The hermitage is around one mile north of Dunkeld off the A9 and is a popular spot for walkers.
