Simon Winton completed his challenge six months ahead of schedule
A Perthshire man has climbed all 284 Munro mountains in Scotland, despite having a condition making it painful for him to walk.
Estate owner Simon Winton, 49, had nerves in his feet injured by frequent welly boot use and has had two operations to repair the damage.
He decided to conquer every mountain above 3,000ft by the time he was 50 - a target he has now met six months early.
Mr Winton raised more than £25,000 for charity on the way.
The money will go to the National Association for Colitis and Crohn's Disease, as Mr Winton suffers from colitis - a condition which affects the intestines.
Mr Winton said: "Why it was the Munros I'm not really entirely sure. I had a book in the cupboard and I pulled it out, had a read of it, got quite excited about it.
"In fact I couldn't put it out of my mind and thought that would be a really good way to raise, hopefully, quite a lot of money."
Mr Winton, who cannot even walk around his house for a hour without shoes on, embarked on his expedition using special insoles.
Mr Winton, who lives in Glenshee and manages the Dalmunzie estate, began his quest in March and finished on Tuesday by scaling Glas Tulaichean.
He admitted there were some hair-raising moments, especially climbing the Cuillins in the mist.
He said: "We were up on the top of Sgurr Dearg which has got a flat slab top on it and if you slipped at all you'd be 500ft down the bottom of the corrie, so we decided to retire and had to go back and do that one again.
"I had some fantastic days up in Torridon, Letterewe, Dundonnell - really big days, I think the biggest day I did was 57km, climbing six Munros.
Wife Alex said: "He's incredibly single-minded and incredibly focussed about most things he does in life. Although it was a hard task he's so self-disciplined.
"He was quite happy getting up at five in the morning, twice a week, and just mapping out his routes and getting out there and doing it."
