More than 1,550 walkers took part in a non-stop 24-hour walk along the West Highland Way in aid of charity.

The RBS Caledonian Challenge started on Saturday morning and finished on Sunday to raise money for the Scottish Community Foundation.

Teams of between three and six people walked 54 miles (86km). This year's event attracted 100 more participants than last year.

The trek started at 0700 BST from a forestry track in Fort William.

The teams then headed through Glencoe via the Devil's Staircase before crossing Rannoch Moor.

The walkers travelled onwards south to Ardlui and Ardleish before finishing on the shores of Loch Lomond.
