One of the Highlands' most popular attractions has said that it will be fully operational once again this weekend after tackling a staffing shortage.

Landmark Forest Adventure Park in Carrbridge will be running all of its activities over the next two days on a trail basis after successfully recruiting more workers.

Park spokesman Ross Coulter said: "During the Easter holidays we were unable to get all our attractions open due to staff shortages.

"Since then, we have slowly been able to recruit more staff and have gradually been able to open more of the park.

"We are delighted to now be in the position to open all our attractions this weekend for the very first time this year.

"We will initially only be doing this on a trial basis – for this weekend only – to see how it works on the ground.

"This means that we will still be offering visitors 10 per cent off their tickets and keeping our coin-operated attractions free over the weekend."

Landmark has had most of its attractions open for several weeks now but with some limited opening times.

This weekend will see The Pinnacle climbing wall open for the first time this season.

RopeworX and Skydive are also now fully open having previously only operating for half a day.

If all goes well then park bosses hope that they will be able to keep more attractions open on a more consistent basis.

Meanwhile new ropes attraction NetworX is not far away from making its debut. It will be Scotland's first ever aerial net challenge.

A Landmark spokesman said: "We've been working on behind the scenes."

Online booking remains essential.

The lack of available staff this year in Badenoch and Strathspey has caused serious problems for many local business operators.
