An RNLI crew from Kyle of Lochalsh were called out in the early hours to help yachtsmen in trouble.

It was around 4am on Monday (June 27) when the lifeboat was called to Plockton Bay where the May Dream has broken from its mooring, run aground and begin to list badly on a falling tide.

When the RNLI volunteers arrived on the scene they were able to work with the two man crew and were eventually able to stabilise the yacht until it was possible to re-float the vessel. No-one was injured during the incident.
