Stair-climbing pensioner Margaret Payne has recorded a message for Highland Hospice with her daughter Nicky, celebrating the phenomenal success of her Suilven-inspired challenge.
The 90-year-old is on a mission to scale the equivalent height of 2398ft high Suilven – one of Scotland's best known mountains – on her stairs at home.
She has embarked on a two-month fundraising bid which would see her climb the staircase at her home near Lairg 282 times.
After originally setting herself a target of raising £10,000 for the NHS and the hospice, she has already generated more than £217,000.
A hospice spokesman said: "We're so grateful to Margaret and everyone who has shown her their love."
