We were walking up to the Tripple Buttres area in Glen Torridon when I came across this metal object, looked like it was off an aeroplane, very very strange..

The area is the site of a fatal training flight crash in 1951.
All eight on board died when the aircraft from RAF Kinloss in Moray hit Triple Buttress on Beinn Eighe on 14 March, 58 years ago.
Difficulties in recovering the bodies over several months led to the formation of RAF Mountain Rescue.
The propeller still sits in West Gully (now known as Fuselage Gully) Use the search facility on this site to find photos of Fuselage Gully and you can see pics of it.
