ATTACK OF THE GIANT JELLIES.
Swimmers are being warned to be careful after a lion's mane jellyfish was spotted near Kilchoan in Argyll.
The species is one of the largest and most dangerous jellyfish, with tentacles of up to 120ft.
Kayakers have spotted several creatures in waters around Ardnamurchan and another was seen near Arisaig.
NHS 24's medical director Professor George Crooks warned not to rinse skin that had been stung in fresh water.
He added: "Try to soak the affected area in vinegar for 15-30 minutes and, if vinegar is not available, use alcohol or sea water."
