Heading towards the Basteir Tooth with Pinnacle Ridge in background.
Three ramblers have stripped a remote mountain in the Scottish Highlands of its status after measuring it at six inches below the official height.
Intrepid hillwalkers John Barnard, Graham Jackson and Myrddyn Phillips set out to complete Britain's most daring mountain survey on Knight's Peak on the Isle of Skye.
Maps list the jagged rocky peak in the Cuillin mountain range at 3,002ft high, just two feet above the 3,000ft required height for mountain status.
However it has long been a source of controversy among hillwalkers who suspected it fell short of the height given on the maps.
