On Monday evening (24 October), Kyle lifeboat went to the assistance of three people stranded by the rising tide and falling darkness on the rocky shoreline between Kirkton bay and Balmacara bay.
The one male and two females were spotted on an outcrop of rocks flashing their torch and waving their arms to gain attention.
The lifeboat manoeuvred alongside the rock in the strong wind and large swell and all three were quickly helped onto the lifeboat by two of her crew.
They were then taken back to Kyle before being taken to Balmacara Hotel where they were staying on holiday.
