A fishing boat which began taking on water off the Scottish coast has arrived safely in port after an air and sea rescue operation.
The coastguard helicopter from Stornoway was called out
The Banff-registered Ulysses, with four crew on board, got into difficulties five miles north east of Cape Wrath, off the north Sutherland coast.
The coastguard helicopter from Stornoway winched pumping equipment on board on Wednesday morning.
The Ulysses was then escorted to port in Scrabster by a lifeboat.
Aberdeen Coastguard co-ordinated the rescue, which saw several vessels in the area also go to the boat's aid.
