NESTLED away in the rural settings of Gateside staff and volunteers at Hessilhead Wildlife Rescue Centre work tirelessly to care for vulnerable animals.
The registered charity relies on donations from the public to help them care for Scotland's injured or orphaned wildlife and with the summer fast approaching the rescue centre will soon reach its busy season.
After travelling along the windy single-track road to Hessilhead my first stop was the hospital to meet the fox cub Kenny, who was found on the streets of Glasgow. He was thought to be a kitten at first but closer inspection revealed he was a fox cub who probably got split-up from his mother as they were moving.
