Two people have been rescued bylifeboat after they were cut off by the incoming tide at Sandhills in Dumfries and Galloway.
It is the second time in four days that people have had to be rescued at the same place.
This time the couple and their two dogs managed to alert the emergency services by mobile phone after being cut off east of the Sandyhills beach towards Southerness.
Kippford Lifeboat raced to the rescue and the couple and their pets were taken back to the beach suffering only from shock.
Early in the week a couple and their dog managed to clamber up rocks near the same area and were plucked to safety by the safe lifeboatmen.
