The Kyle of Lochalsh lifeboat was called out to rescue a fishing boat yesterday (Sunday 12 February.)

At the request of the UK Coastguard, the lifeboat was launched at 3:14pm to aid the broken down vessel.  The boat contained two people and was drifting towards the southern shore of the Applecross peninsula.

The fishing boat suffered an engine failure when it was approximately one mile away from the Plockton lighthouse, leaving it without power and in turbulent conditions.

After the lifeboat arrived at around 3:30pm, the vessel was swiftly towed back to Plockton and safely returned to its mooring.
