Work is nearing completion on the UK's longest zip wire.

It will be based near Gatehouse of Fleet and tourism bosses say it will bring in hundreds of extra visitors to south west Scotland.

A tracer wire spanning 820 metres has now been installed between two towers.

Developer Duncan McConchie said: " The zip wire experience will attract and thrill people from all over."

The project at the Laggan Outdoor Centre is costing £100,000.
