Rescue helicopter over Loch Ness

The Coastguard Rescue helicopter was in the air over Loch Ness today in training exercises. Yesterday there were two accidents on the A82 opposite and the Air Rescue helicopter is vital to quickly ferry patients to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness. Beautiful warm breezy weather here today so hopefully people may be driving more carefully.
