She was flown to a helicopter base at Stornoway Airport, before being transferred to the town’s Western Isles Hospital by ambulance.
A spokeswoman for the coastguard said it was not a “full on emergency”, adding: “Our rescue helicopter went out to St Kilda to pick up a lady that had a fall, she’s been taken back right now to Western Isles Hospital.”
