The volunteer Coastguard team were paged just after 1pm to a walker on the coastal path near to Anvil Point.
An 81 year old male had slipped and injured his ankle while walking with a group.
The team arrived and provided initial first aid but with heavy fog and damp ground conditions the casualty needed to be moved to a point where an ambulance could safely get too.
The male was carefully moved on to the Coastguard stretcher and carried the quarter of a mile to the ambulance.
The team returned to station just after 3pm
