Mallaig lifeboat goes to aid of injured walker

A lifeboat has gone to the aid of a walker who sought shelter in a remote west Highlands bothy after injuring an ankle.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said the walker was hurt on Wednesday and was unable to return on foot from near Loch Nevis.

Mallaig lifeboat launched at 1520 GMT and head for Sourlies bothy at the head of the loch.

The bothy is used as a base by walkers on Munro-bagging trips.
