Comedian Jack Whitehall just can't keep away from the strath.

The Fresh Meat and Bad Education star was recording at G2 Outdoor's zip-wire park at Alvie Estate by Aviemore earlier this week.

The adventure company provides more than three kilometres of zip-wiring fun at its park.

Director Mike Gale said: “The zip park is a regular venue to the stars and it was nice to see Jack Whitehall back zipping here.

"His previous jaunt at G2 Outdoor was in the gorge trying to swim through the waterfalls for the TV show A League of their Own.

"Jack was up here filming with the usual Covid-19 permissions in place and as always we maintained our usual high Covid standards”

G2 Outdoor helped Whitehall and the stars of Sky One's A League of Their Own last Autumn when the production team recorded the first leg of the show's Road Trip: Loch Ness to London canyoning in the strath.

The park now has 36 zip wires, all set against the backdrop of the Cairngorms.

G2 Outdoors has also added a small catering operation, the Snack Shack, at its course this year.

The original zip-wire course opened in 2011.
