Anyone wanting to conquer An Cliseam now has the perfect opportunity.

Marathon Hebrides and Lewis Wind Power have teamed up to make the mountain an easier climb.

At 799 metres it is the highest mountain in the Outer Hebrides.

As well as the annual Cliseam Hill Race, there will be an introductory 2k Mini Cliseam race, open to anyone aged 12 and over.

A guided hike will also be held, with experienced hikers helping you to reach the summit of the highest peak in the Western Isles and ensuring you get safely back to the hill's base.

Those who successfully conquer the Cliseam will receive a choice of Harris Gin or malt whisky upon reaching the summit.  

The event will take place on Saturday 20 October, starting at the Scaladale Centre.
