Fishing boat rescued from rocks

A fishing boat with three people aboard struck rocks at Rigg Bay, Garlieston on Monday.

Kirkcudbright’s Lifeboat, the Sheila Stenhouse, was quickly launched at 4.29am to aid the Creaghan Mhor, which had lost power. Another fishing vessel had secured a tow and both vessels then waited until the lifeboat arrived. One of the crew had a minor injury dealt with at the scene.
