The elderly man slipped and fell while exploring on clifftops around Mealasta this
Stornoway coastguard helicopter flew the casualty directly to hospital in Stornoway.

Meanwhile, a stricken fishing boat with one person onboard was towed into Stornoway

Stornoway lifeboat took the small craft under tow on Thursday evening, calling in
at Loch Odhairn, Gravir, for shelter to pump out some of the incoming seawater.
The same night, Leverburgh lifeboat launched to a different emergency when a boat
reported engine failure off Skye. The casualty was taken under tow by another vessel
and the lifeboat stood down.
