Two climbers were rescued on Saturday after falling from Green Gully at Ben Nevis.

The pair fell from high on the gully, with one of the climbers sustaining ‘significant injuries’.

Lochaber Mountain Rescue team dispatched to provide assistance to the climbers.

A number of its team members were winched into Coire na Ciste where they were able to assess, treat and package the climber with the injuries.

They were then lowered to a spot where they could be winched for onward transport to hospital.

Mountain rescue teams in the area have been busy in the last month.

A man died and two others were taken to hospital last week following a major rescue operation on Ben Nevis.

Police responded after 24 people got into difficulty on the mountain in the afternoon on Tuesday, March 8.

A JustGiving appeal has been set up to help support the rescue teams, with members of the public asked to donate directly.
