First female skipper of world's last ferry of its kind
A 21-year-old has qualified as a skipper on the world's last sea-going, manually-operated, turntable ferry.
Isabelle Law worked summer jobs on the MV Glenachulish, which is almost 50 years old and serves the oldest crossing to Skye from the mainland.
Ms Law, from Skye, is the first woman to take charge of the boat.
She said: "It is quite unique for a woman to be a skipper, so hopefully it will encourage other people to follow their dreams."
The Troon-built MV Glenachulish crosses the Kylerhea Straits between Glenelg and Kylerhea on Skye.
A car ferry has crossed the straits since 1934.
The current service has been run by a community-owned company since 2007. It took over the route after long-time ferryman Roddy MacLeod retired.
Ms Law realised that she wanted to help to keep the ferry service going while working on the MV Glenachulish during her school holidays.
She said: "To be the skipper would help them out in years to come."
About her job she said: "It is not intimidating, but it is a huge task to take on.
"You are in charge of this vessel and you are in charge of the passengers' safety.
"But I've got amazing helpers that have helped me to achieve this, and they are constantly helping me out to learn how to handle the vessel."
