Safety officer Heather Morning on YouTube
A rundown of accident black spots in the hills has been posted on a video sharing website by the Mountaineering Council of Scotland (MCoS).
The briefing for walkers and climbers is given by the council's safety officer Heather Morning and uploaded on YouTube.
Earlier this year, she had a close call of her own on the west face of Stac Pollaidh in Wester Ross.
Lightning struck rock 20m above her and a climbing partner.
In October, the Perth-based council encouraged walkers and climbers to go online to prepare themselves for winter conditions on Scotland's hills and mountains.
The organisation has free advice on its website and also urged enthusiasts to check the Scottish Avalanche Information Service's online reports.
The council said 10 out of 20 deaths in the mountains last year happened in winter.
