A walker was airlifted to hospital after falling at a ruined castle on Skye.
Duntulm, Portree and Dunvegan coastguard rescue teams were tasked to assist the Scottish Ambulance Service to evacuate the walker at Duntulm Castle around 4pm on Sunday.
But once on scene a decision taken that a stretcher evacuation was too hazardous so Stornoway coastguard search and rescue helicopter airlifted the man, who had a leg injury, to a waiting ambulance. His condition is unknown.
Duntulm Castle stands ruined on the north coast of Trotternish.
During the 17th century it was the seat of the chiefs of Clan MacDonald of Sleat.
According to one local legend, the castle was abandoned after the infant son of the chieftain who dwelt there at the time, in the charge of a nursemaid, fell from a window and was dashed on the rocks below. As a punishment, the nursemaid was set adrift on the North Atlantic in a small boat.
