A large dead whale has washed ashore in Benbecula.

The badly-decomposed mammal was discovered on the shore near Balivanich on Thursday.

Its species has not been confirmed.

The council issued a general warning for people to keep away from dead whales in case they catch a disease from it.

A risk of infection to the public may exist if blood and bodily fluids leaches from the dead mammal.
