A new mountain rescue base has beenopened in the west coast town of Ullapool.
The centre will be the team's second permanent base
The team will cover 2,000 square miles of the west and central Highlands.
The new centre has been built with the help of the Order of Saint John, a Christian organisation linked to the St John Ambulance Service.
The Ullapool base for the Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team covers an area from Loch Maree to Glen Affric and as far north as the Sutherland border.
It is the second of three bases being built for the Dundonnell team, with the third planned for Dingwall.
This Ullapool facility had been designed by one of the team members.
The Order of St John first built a centre for the Aberdeen team in 1998 and has now developed centres in Skye, at Arrochar and in Moffat.
Others are planned for the Lomond team and the Ochils.
Dundonnell team leader Donald Macrae said the new base will be a key element in their operations in the hills around Ullapool.
The first centre for the Dundonnell team was built in Wester Ross in 2003.
