A popular Perthshire mountain path will be closed for two days so a helicopter crew can repair its damaged surface.
John Muir Trust bosses have unveiled their plans for Schiehallion later this month.
Around 20,000 people scale the Munro in a typical year but wear and tear and Scottish weather have left the path in need of TLC.
Contractors will use a helicopter to airdrop stone to the site on July 20 and 27, weather permitting. The materials will be used to construct new steps and improve drainage.
The path will be closed to hikers while the work is carried out.
The Trust also started repairing damage to the new low level Foss Loop easy access path nearby this week after it was damaged in a storm earlier this year.
The kilometre long path and boardwalk will be closed until the weekend.
A diversion for the main Schiehallion path will be in place through a field and along a hill track. Maps and diversion signs will be available on site, but parking spaces at the Braes of Foss car park will be reduced.
Land manager Liz Auty said: “It is unfortunate that these repairs are coming just as we’re expecting a few more visitors as lockdown eases.
“Our aim is to make the new Foss Loop path safe as soon as possible, with the minimum of disruption.
“There will be reduced parking during the works so walkers may wish to plan a trip to another location to avoid disruption.”
