Rescue teams from Mull, Tobermory and Craignure were called out after a person had fallen and broken their leg on a beach near Fidden and Eraid at the south end of Mull at about 3.45pm on Thursday, 29 April.
The casualty then had to be airlifted to a hospital on the mainland after the tide came in and completely surrounded the area.
Teams were stood down and returned to base at 6.30pm that day.
A spokesperson from the Craignure Coastguard Rescue Team said: “When we arrived on site the Ross of Mull team, a SAS paramedic and R199 Medic were already on site and attending to the casualty.
"By this time the tide had completely surrounded the area so the casualty was winched on a stretcher into the Helo and flown direct to a hospital on the mainland.
"The team (2 now kitted up in wading kit) assisted the SAS paramedic, ROM team back to shore with all their kit and casualties personal belongings.
“We wish the casualty a speedy and full recovery.”
HM Coastguard are urging and reminding anyone who sees someone in difficulty or sees anything concerning on the shoreline, beaches, cliffs, mud or water, to call 999 immediately and ask for the Coastguard.
