A Scots couple took their wedding to new heights after getting hitched at the top of a munro in the Highlands.

Hillwalkers Brian Welsh and Sharon McKenna said 'I do' in front of around 20 loved ones on Saturday.

Their unique ceremony took place at the top of Stob Corrie Raineach; a northern munro peak on Buachaille Etive Beag, near the eastern end of Glencoe and then on lower ground at Glencoe Lochan.

The unconventional do, accompanied by piper, Grant MacLeod, was caught on camera as the bridal party battled blustering wind and rainy conditions at the summit.

But the Glasgow lovebirds said their big day was 'amazing' and one they will never forget.

Still on a high Sharon, 47, told the Record: "We thought getting married on a summit would be like something out of a fairytale.

"But family and friends thought we were insane.

"They said, 'you'd never get me up a hill' but amazingly quite a few of them did.

"It was such a special day."

The couple were introduced through a mutual friend in March 2013.

Brian, 46, told the Record: "I was taken a back by Sharon straight away at how lovely she was.

"We've been a couple ever since."

After moving in together a few years ago Brian, an offshore chef, popped the question at Inaccessible Pinnacle on the Isle of Skye on September 6, 2020.

Stunning images of the proposal were shared on social media and soon went viral.

But while scaling new heights is a long-term passion for Brian, Sharon was a true novice before meeting the love of her life.

"I'd never gone hillwalking before meeting Brian," she added.

Brian and Sharon's wedding cake was in keeping with the theme

"I now have a hobby that I absolutely love."

Plans to get hitched on March 15 this year, their anniversary, were scuppered amid Scotland's second Covid-19 lockdown.

But it was full steam ahead for May 8 once restrictions lifted, with the unorthodox couple keeping a few wedding traditions.

"I stayed at our house in Glasgow while Brian stayed in Glencoe the night before," Sharon added.

"At the summit, Brian changed into his kilt and stood with his best man, David Jess, while my daughter, Caitlin McKenna, 22, was my maid of honour.

"Grant played pipes in the background and our officiator, Chris Alexander was amazing.

"I would have changed into my white dress at the summit but the weather was terrible, so I did that at the bottom.

"Brian and I then celebrated back at the house in Glasgow, with our amazing cake fro Newlands Home Bakery."

With plans to climb Mount Everest as part of their honeymoon postponed till next year, the couple settled for an overnight in a Glencoe lodge to mark the start of their new chapter.

And to other Scots couples thinking of hosting a similar wedding celebration, Brian and Sharon say 'go for it'.

"A wedding isn't all about things like the dress," Sharon said.

"It's about the couple, the vows and the days itself.
