Lion's mane jellyfish swims off Summer Isles

A large lion's mane jellyfish has been filmed by a snorkeller at Isle Martin in the Summer Isles in the north west Highlands.

Noel Hawkins, of the Scottish Wildlife Trust's Living Seas project, took his footage late last week.

Lion's mane are one of the world's largest known species of jellyfish and "pack a fairly sore sting", said the trust.

The one filmed by Mr Hawkins was about 4.5m (15ft) in length.

The snorkeler said: "Although nasty to the touch, they are quite graceful to see."
