Fishing vessel aground in Sound of Mull Published:  08 April, 2013

A fishing vessel ran aground at Ardtornish Point in the Sound of Mull, Argyll, on the west coast of Scotland on Friday April 5 2013 and had to be towed back to harbour by Oban lifeboat.

The FV Adaptable went aground at 2.43am but there was no ingress of water or pollution from the boat. A tow line was established from the lifeboat to to the Adaptable and she was pulled free of the shoreline.

Because of steering gear problems a slow and tricky tow took place back to Oban where the vessel was berthed alongside the North Pier by 6.05am.
