A dog has fallen 200ft to its death whilst being walked on the Skye coast.
A group of five people, believed to be tourists, were walking the dog at Kilt Rock, in Trotternish, Skye, when the cocker spaniel fell off the cliff at 2.30pm.
Coastguard rescue teams from Dunvegan and Portree were sent after the walkers alerted the emergency services.
The Portree lifeboat was also dispatched and recovered the dog from the water.
A Stornoway Coastguard spokeswoman said: “We got a 999 call at 2.30pm from the owner of a dog up at the view off Kilt Rock on Skye. Their dog had gone over the cliff.
“We sent the Portree and Dunvegan coastguard rescue teams to try and go over the cliff and see if they could find the dog.”
Kilt Rock is said to be a popular spot with walkers and tourists, and gets its name from the vertical basalt columns which form a cliff pattern resembling the traditional Highland dress.
The spokeswoman added: “We would advise owners to keep dogs on leads near cliffs.”
