Robin Hood star Russell Crowe has given a battering ram to a charity as a thank you for providing movie extras. The film star prop has arrived at Duncarron Fort in the Caron Valley.
The prop, named Rosie, was used on the set of the new Robin Hood film and members of the Clanranald trust appeared as extras in the blockbuster.
The Trust are building a replica medieval fort at Duncarron so groups and individuals can experience the atmosphere of an authentic medieval community.
Chief executive of the Trust, Charlie Allan, became friends with the Australian actor during the filming of Gladiator so Russell was aware of the work being done at the fort.
Charlie said: "While we were on the set (of Robin Hood) near Farnham in Surrey he suggested trying to get some of the props.
"I had my eye on some tents, which I thought would look good until we got our long houses built.
"He said he'd do what he could to help and the very next day he came to me with a huge grin on his face, grabbed me by the sleeve, pointed at the battering ram and said, 'It's all yours'."

The Clanranald Trust is a charitable organisation which aims to raise awareness of Scottish culture and heritage through interactive education.
So far the trust has spent about £350,000 on the project but still needs to raise £250,000 to complete the fort.
