Six teenagers who had gone missing while walking in the Kinlochleven area of the Highlands have been found safe and well.

The alarm was raised after the four females and two male Duke of Edinburgh students failed to return to their base camp on Sunday evening.

A rescue helicopter joined the Lochaber Mountain Rescue team in the search of the top of Glen Nevis, the Corrour Estate and Kinlochleven.

The students are all aged 16 or 17.
