SIX people were rescued after a 52-foot pleasure cruiser ran aground on Loch Lomond on Saturday night.

The alarm was raised at 10.46pm on August 15, when Police Scotland asked the Loch Lomond Rescue Boat's volunteer crew to help after a Sunseeker vessel ran on to a sand bank south of Duck Bay.

After a short journey from their boat shed in Luss, the crew quickly located the vessel and attached a towline.

Following several attempts, the vessel, which had six people on board, was towed off the sand bank, and the rescue boat followed it back to its mooring at Cameron House Marina.

After the cruiser was tied up safely at the marina, the people on board made a kind donation towards the rescue boat's work.

The boat and its crew returned to Luss and stood down at 12.55am.
