An injured hillwalker has managed to walk to safety after falling while out in the Ben Lawers area.

A search for the 58-year-old man was sparked after he became separated from a party of five other hillwalkers near to Killin on Saturday.

Tayside Police said Tayside and Killin Mountain Rescue teams were called out along with a Royal Navy helicopter.

But the missing man, who had fallen and sustained a leg injury, was able to walk to a nearby farm.

He was taken to hospital for treatment.
