    The Inverness Coastguard crew was undertaking a winter training with a visitor from the helicopter base at Stag Rocks in the Cairngorms when they happened to luckily spot Ben. A Coastguard spokeswoman told BBC News: "The weather had luckily presented them an ideal window of opportunity to use the rest of their training time to rescue the dog."
