Our photograph of the week is a series of four images taken in the hills high above Lochranza. The spectacular photos, from Banner reader Val Gall, show a golden eagle chasing and attacking red deer. Val, who previously lived on Arran for 20 years and whose two daughters still live here, has only seen eagles hunting deer twice before. but they were young deer and not adults. Val works in medical research in Dundee and describes wildlife photography as being her sanity from the rigours of work.
