A woman who left her remote home in the Scottish Highlands to buy a turkey for Christmas has finally been able to get back home - 30 days after she set out.

Heavy snow meant it was not possible for Kay Ure to get back to Cape Wrath after a shopping trip to Inverness.

The 54-year-old and her husband John live in the Lighthouse Keeper's cottage at Cape Wrath, on Britain's north western tip, where they run a cafe.

Bad weather meant Mrs Ure could not complete the last 11 miles home.
