A spokesperson for HM Coastguard said:

“Just before 3pm today (20 April), HM Coastguard received a 999 call from the pilot of a light aircraft that had carried out an emergency landing at Shian Bay on the Isle of Jura. Jura Coastguard Rescue Team and the coastguard search and rescue helicopter from Prestwick that was training nearby, were sent. The pilot, who was the only person on board, was not injured and needed no further medical attention.”
