Two climbers became stuck on an island peak known as the Matterhorn of Arran amid thick cloud on Saturday night.
The Arran Mountain Rescue Team was called out at around 8.10pm after the pair became “cragfast” on Cir Mhor.
The Rescue 199 Helicopter from HM Coastguard Prestwick took the rescuers to The Saddle, the mountain pass between Cir Mhor and Arran’s highest peak, Goat Fell.
From there the team made their way up to the top of the mountain above of where the climbers had become stuck in “thick clagg” – low cloud or dense fog near the peak.
The Arran Mountain Rescue Team lowered a rope down to them and they were able to make their way safely to their location before being assisted off the hill.
Both mountain climbers were unharmed.
Cir Mhor is known as the Matterhorn of Arran because of the similarity of its shape to the Alpine peak.
