Firefighters have been dealing with large wildfires in the Highlands.

Several fire crews were called to a blaze in Glen Etive in Lochaber on Sunday.

And the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said it still had firefighters monitoring a wildfire at Lubcroy near Oykel in Sutherland.

The incidents have come just days after a major wildfire that burned for almost two full days on a hillside between Lochinver and the mountain Suilven in the north west Highlands.
