Tobermory lifeboat was out all night after a charter yacht grounded in Loch Sunart.
The yacht Raphy G went aground with five people onboard at Oronsay at 1.10am.
Stornoway Coastguard sent the lifeboat to the scene, where the wind was gusting at gale-force. A coastguard spokeswoman said: “They were waiting for it to re-float on the high tide. When this happened at 6.48am they realised the yacht had fouled its propeller.
“The lifeboat stood by until a diver arrived to free a rope from the propeller. This was done by 9.20am and the yacht was ready to make its way to Dunstaffnage Marina.”
