A stunning photograph taken by local geography teacher, Neil Adams, has seen Lochaber High School voted the most scenic school in Scotland.

Run by TES Magazine (formerly the Times Educational Supplement) as a bit of fun in the build up to Christmas, the competition eventually saw photographs of 48 schools from across the country submitted, attracting more than 20,000 votes via Twitter polls.

The Fort William secondary eventually emerged as the overall winner on Christmas Eve after defeating fellow finalists Morgan Academy from Dundee in a poll that drew around 3,500 votes.

A statement on Lochaber High’s Facebook page celebrated the school’s win: ‘It’s official Lochaber High School voted as Scotland’s most scenic school. Huge thanks to all our supporters for taking the time to vote us through the rounds.’
