A climber has been airlifted to hospital after falling from a mountainside.

The man had been scaling Corrie an Lochan, in the Northern Corries area of the Cairngorms, when the incident happened.

Emergency services were called just after 11am on Thursday to rescue him.

Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team members responded, as did a Marine and Coastguard Agency Helicopter.

He has since been airlifted to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, with his condition not believed to be life-threatening.
