Stornoway Coastguard helicopter rescues fallen walker on Isle of Skye

Meanwhile, on the Isle of Skye two days ago our Stornoway Coastguard helicopter captured this amazing scenery after being called to rescue a fallen walker with a leg injury.
Just before 10:30am on 29 December we received a call from Police Scotland asking us to support Skye Mountain Rescue Team SCIO after receiving a report of the injured walker on Quiraing, Isle of Skye.
We sent in our helicopter who airlifted the man and took him to Stornoway airport for onward transfer to hospital. We wish him a speedy recovery and a good new year!
