A robbery has taken place at a luxury jewellery store at a top Tayside hotel.
Armed police were deployed to the Mappin and Webb shop within the Gleneagles Hotel, near Auchterarder off the A9.
Reports suggest the culprits were carrying weapons at the time of the raid.
A number of expensive watches and diamonds are said to have been taken with a shop window being cleared out.
One person who said his daughter works at the hotel took to social media saying “police are all over the place”.
He added that staff and hotel guests were placed on “lockdown”.
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland confirmed they were in attendance at “an incident” at the resort and that no-one was injured. A number of officers remain at the hotel with some areas taped off.
Mappin & Webb has two stores within the hotel which sell a “selection of premium fine jewellery and is home to the world’s most prestigious Swiss watch brands including Rolex”, according to the jeweller’s website.
The Gleneagles estate has four golf courses and hosted the Ryder Cup in 2014.
