What we do

We are a charitable Search and Rescue organisation (SCO 24517).

Our purpose is to locate and recover people who have found themselves in difficult situations in the outdoors.

If you need us

Call 999 and ask for Police and then Mountain Rescue.

We will respond to your call for help any time and in any weather conditions.  We don’t charge for our services.


We are a Team of 35 mountaineers with specialist training.

We make use of specialist helicopters and search dogs where necessary and our running costs are supported by donations and fundraising.


We are keen to raise awareness about how to enjoy the outdoors as safely as possible.

🏔 Another busy weekend 🏔

On Saturday Ochils Kev, Willie and Billy attended the Coalsnaugton Gala day to provide first aid to the event. A great afternoon was had by all despite the wind 💨

In the North team members Ochils Mitch, Fiona and Simon took part in the Highland Cross event running 20 miles then cycling 30 miles fundraising for causes across the Highlands. 💪🏻

Today some of our incident managers joined colleagues from Lomond Mountain Rescue Team and the Scottish Ambulance Service SORT team at Finnich Glen as part of a joint exercise followed by discussions on best practice for the new Scottish Mountain Rescue issued Titan stretcher. 🚑

Team mountain rescue search dog Evie and trainee search dog Woody were also away this weekend training in the Glencoe area with their SARDA Southern Scotland doggy colleagues. 🐾

🏔 Trainee Assessment and a busy afternoon 🏔

Today the team was on the hill conducting an assessment of our five trainees who have spent the last year learning what we do in the team.

Kirsty, Leslie, Dan, Michael and Anthony were put through their paces on the hill being assessed over five mountain rescue skills including Navigation, medical, technical rope work and dealing with the Scottish weather! 🌨

We are delighted to say that all passed and have graduated to our callout list. Very well done!

Following the assessment we had the pleasure of welcoming the Lord-Lieutenant of Clackmannanshire Johnny Stewart and the Provost Donald Balsille to our rescue post where Johnny presented eligible team members with their Queens Platinum Jubilee medal and our new team members their assessment certificates.

It was then time to say farewell to Ochils Mike (Mario) who after many years of service is retiring from the team. Team leader Ochils Robert presented Mike with a team picture.

The BBQ was then fired up and friends and family members of the team were treated to a BBQ in the sun to celebrate a great day.

Many thanks to all involved in a very busy day! 👏
