Nesting sea eagles and wild goats grazing on seaweed were just some of the wildlife sights spotted on a seafaring island trip from Seil raising funds for charity.

Instead of charging passengers for the four-hour trip that took in the Seil Sound, Cuan Sound, Sound of Luing, the Grey Dogs, Scarba, the Corryvwreckan and Jura, boat captain David Ainsley, who runs Sealife Adventures, accepted donations in aid of Seed For Life – a charity helping farmers grow crops and feed children in Malawi.
