Ceud and Rowan have been released into a freshwater loch
An otter cub partially paralysed after being hit by a car has recovered well enough to be returned to the wild.
Named Rowan, the male received care at the Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary in Oban and then from the International Otter Survival Fund (IOSF) on Skye.
Rowan and another cub Ceud, a female found in Perthshire, have been returned to the wild by IOSF.
Ceud, Gaelic for 100, was named after becoming the 100th otter to be treated at the fund's island sanctuary.
The two otters were released into a freshwater loch on the mainland.
IOSF said of Rowan: "He was partially paralysed but with the great care of the staff he recovered enough to be moved to Skye and he has since grown into a big strong otter.
"When the two cubs were first introduced to each other there was a lot of yelling from Ceud, who obviously objected to her new pen-mate, although she did not actually touch him.
"Eventually she accepted him and they soon began to curl up to sleep together. Initially Rowan was smaller but it was him who pinched the fish from Ceud."
