A ‘GUARDIAN’ angel has been spotted in clouds above the Isle of Skye.
David Harvey, from Glasgow, spotted the heavenly figure whilst out on a walk in Mallaig, Lochaber in the Highlands.
The 59-year-old believes the angel appeared as a “sign”, as he is currently caring for a friend who is battling cancer.
A picture shows the outline of an angel and her wings, lit up by the sun’s rays and shining down over the sea.
Mr Harvey said: “I am looking after a friend who has cancer and is having an operation soon to remove a tumour.
“I have told him this is his guardian angel – it’s a good omen. I took the photograph with a cheap camera just as I saw the clouds in the sky.
“The picture has given us a lift. I have called it the Angel over Skye and I believe it was an angel coming to tell me everything will be fine.”
He uploaded the picture to social media in the hope that it will help others who may be in the same situation.
It has received hundreds of comments from people who agree the clouds do resemble a heavenly figure.
Pamela Hay wrote on Facebook: “Fantastic picture. In the right place at the right time.”
Joyce Craigie said: “You do know that they’re up there, watching us.”
Jo Dunworth added: “How amazing and beautiful, hope she’s watching over us all.”
Just last year, a woman spotted what appeared to be an angel in the skies just days before Christmas.
Sherrie Abbott was driving on the A17 between Sutton Bridge, Lincolnshire, and Kings Lynn, Norfolk, when she saw the figure in the clouds.
She believes it was a festive message from her husband, Colin, who had died 20 years earlier.
