The whales, up to 35 feet in length, became stranded in soft sand at Cruden bay north of Aberdeen at the weekend. Local officials said they planned to bury the whales in deep pits inland. "It is a major task because of the difficulties in moving excavation equipment on to the soft sand," said a spokesman. But officials feared the mammals might be washed onshore again if they were towed out to sea.
