A fishing boat in difficulties in South Uist has been rescued.

The shellfish boat with two crew onboard lost engine power and was drifting towards rocks in Loch Boisdale.

A salmon farm vessel in the sea loch rescued the pair.

The stricken craft was towed to safety by a local boat.

Barra lifeboat was launched around 12.40pm but was stood down on voyage.

The Lochboisdale volunteer coastal team was also called in.
