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.

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.

Team leaders from around Northern England and Southern Scotland were involved in a 'surprise' table top exercise to test the SARCALL call out system last night. A made up incident in the Lake district required a multi team response from the Lakes, North of England and Southern Scotland Mountain Rescue Teams. Scottish team leaders using the SARCALL system have Silver Command access and in the event of a major incident being called resources can be managed on SARCALL. However it still gets your pulse rate up when the text comes in and for a few minutes the word 'exercise' has not quite registered!!!!! Anyway the upshot was the system worked very well and illustrated the joined up thinking between Mountain Rescue Teams North and South of the border. BIG picture thinking!! #ScottishMR #workingtogether ... See MoreSee Less
