All Loch Ness RNLI's female crew respond to shout on International Women's Day
The RNLI crew on Loch Ness were tasked to assist the fire service in removing deceased cattle from the shore near a popular tourist attraction.
Appropriately for International Women's Day, all four of Loch Ness' operational crew were involved, with two female crew members on the lifeboat.

Key facts about the RNLI
The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts. The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and, in a normal year, more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
