Still Waters

A research buoy used for monitoring ocean climate conditions in the sea close to a Greenland glacier has been found washed up on a Highlands beach.

The buoy, moored 1,000m (3,281ft) down, last transmitted in 2015 and was thought to be lost after unsuccessful efforts to retrieve it.

On 9 February, the yellow buoy was found washed up next to Clachtoll Beach Campsite in Sutherland.

Scientists said it had travelled 1,098 miles (1,768km).

It was found with a Greenland sea anemone still attached to it.
