Tributes have been paid to an Inverness College lecturer who died in a climbing incident.
Ewan Lyons died while climbing Beinn Dearg near Ullapool in Wester Ross on the weekend of March 14.
The lecturer at Inverness College UHI had been teaching Architectural Technology there since 2014.
Mr Lyons previously studied construction management at the college in 2010 before going on to work there.
He was described as an “accomplished climber and hillwalker” with a particular interest in building conservation, spending the summer months on the hillsides repairing old bothies.
A spokesperson for the college said: “It was his experience as a student which gave Ewan a special affinity with his students.
“He was a hardworking and calm lecturer, widely respected by staff, students and the close-knit construction industry.
“He will be missed for his upbeat manner, bright conversations and his determination to always put the student experience first.
“He will be a massive loss to Inverness College UHI as well as the wider climbing and hillwalking community.
“Our thoughts are very much with his friends and family.”
