Coastguard crews were called to rescue a camper who became stuck at the foot of a grass slope in the early hours of yesterday morning.

The alarm was raised at just before 2am at Durness, the most north westerly village on mainland UK.

Durness, Melness and Kinlochbervie coastguard rescue teams were scrambled amid fears the woman had gone missing at Chailgeag Beach.

The woman was located at the base of a grass slope near the beach, before being assessed by coastguards and assisted back to her tent.

Meanwhile at around 6.14pm on Wednesday, Coastguard teams were called to stretcher a quad driver who was injured on the coast near Plockton in Wester Ross.

Kyle, Portree and Applecross rescue crews went to Drumbuie and helped the man, who had a suspected broken leg, before he was passed into the care of paramedics.
