Fifteen pilot whales in trouble in Kyle of Durness
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said the whales were believed to be from a pod of as many as 60.
The long-finned pilot whales may have been hunting prey or had sought a place to rest.
A Royal Navy bomb disposal team training in the area has offered its help in any rescue effort.
British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) and Scottish SPCA inspectors headed for the scene.
Highland Council countryside ranger Donald Mitchell and nine coastguard volunteers have been monitoring the situation.
Mr Mitchell said that at low tide only a narrow channel of sea remained.

Every living thing in the seas are slowly dying. Mankind cannot deter that fact, nor can they clean up the seas of the billions upon billions of dead sea life that will eventually stagnate the life-sustaining waters of this once beautiful gem formed and nurtured to life by our Mother and Her Son Christ Jesus – the former Michael. Pestilence from the decaying dead sea life will eventually spread to all living on the earth. The beginning of the torment meted out will come in progressive stages as the chain reaction of those that depend on and feed upon life in the sea will be starved and begin to also perish, causing further desecration of this planet and bringing more calamity upon those survivors of mankind as Yahweh moves toward a climax of Satan’s present empire.
