A holidaymaker was rescued when she got into difficulty in the sea after being cut off by the tide at Steinish in the Outer Hebrides.
Murdo Macaulay, Watch Manager at Stornoway Coastguard, said:
“The woman was rescued within 16 minutes of us receiving the initial call.
“She was tired from her ordeal, but didn’t sustain any injuries.
“We advise people to check the weather and tides before they set out.”
