Coastguard Rescue teams spent this weekend training in a slightly unusual location – Eilean Glas Lighthouse on Scalpay.
The Coastguard rescue teams were deployed by helicopter to the Lighthouse to train with Northern Lighthouse Board to ensure they are capable of safely recusing from lighthouse towers.

Said HM Coastguard – Western Isles, Skye and Lochaber on their Facebook page: “We had Lyon Work and Rescue and our Technical Rescue Specialist and Standards branch. Really great, challenging training and conditions.”
