Volunteers clearing stones from the 4,418ft peak were astonished when they discovered the musical instrument on Ben Nevis.

The piano was recovered by 15 volunteers from the John Muir Trust, the conservation charity which owns part of Ben Nevis.

The squad was removing litter and stones called cairns from the summit plateau when they spotted the top of the piano.

“Our guys couldn’t believe their eyes,” said trust director Nigel Hawkins.

“At first they thought it was just the wooden casing but then they saw the whole cast iron frame complete with strings.

“The only thing that that was missing was the keyboard – and that’s another mystery.
