A FISHERMAN was rescued by a lifeboat after getting trapped on his vessel due to the adverse weather conditions near Kyle of Lochalsh.
The RNLI lifeboat in Kyle of Lochalsh were called out at 11.11am to assist the man, whose fishing vessel was safe on a mooring near Ratagan, on the shore of Loch Duich, but was unable to move as the boat wouldn't have been able to face the stormy weather.
A coastguard spokesperson confirmed the man is safe and made it back on land.
The call-out came amid deteriorating weather conditions across Ross-shire as Storm Brendan approaches the Highlands.
CalMac ferry services have also been heavily impacted by the storm.
A further weather warning, this time for snow and ice, has also been issued for Tuesday morning.
