An injured loggerhead turtle rescued on the Isle of Skye has been flown by seaplane to a new home in a Dorset wildlife sanctuary.
Skye the loggerhead turtle will be flown to England
The 66cm-long (26in) young male, which has a missing front left flipper, had been recuperating at the Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary, near Oban.
Nicknamed Skye, he was spotted by tourists in July.
Local resident Linda Elford, 50, managed to get hold of the turtle and get it on to her husband's boat.
Skye needs a bigger tank with warmer water than the Oban attraction can provide, which prompted his move to the Sea Turtle Sanctuary at Weymouth, Dorset, which opened earlier this summer.
