The first week in August saw local Coastguard Rescue Teams assist two children.

Dunvegan and Portree Coastguard rescued the children, who swam to an offshore island and had been cut off by the tide.  

A local fish farm boat recovered the casualties.

Dunvegan Coastguard Rescue Team assisted them once they had landed ashore.

In a separate incident, the Dunvegan Team was also tasked with cordoning off a para flare found in Eynort shore.  The flare has now been recovered and taken to Portree CRE for disposal.  An Explosive Ordinance Disposal unit will dispose of it.
