A ferry operator which operates around Scotland has recruited a dedicated wildlife officer.
Andy Gilbert will help educate crew and passengers onboard CalMac ferries about marine life around the west coast.
The appointment follows four years of work by the ferry firm and wildlife charity Orca, monitoring mammals like whales and dolphins in the Minch.
