It has been described as a week of mixed emotions for conservationists at the International Otter Survival Fund (IOSF) headquarters in Skye after one otter was released into the wild but another was found dead.

Two lively adult otters have been released into the wild following their stay at an otter sanctuary on Skye.
It started as a local environmental centre offering wildlife tours to Skye visitors.
They have been involved in otter conservation for years, rescuing more than 200 in the UK alone.
