❌Callout 25/2022❌

Earlier this afternoon the team was called out by Police Scotland to assist two disorientated hill walkers in woodland in the Jerah area.

Team members deployed to the hill and the walkers were quickly located then walked to our vehicles and assisted off the hill.

The walkers did exactly the right thing when finding themselves in difficulty. They stayed where they were, called 999, asked for Police then Mountain rescue.

⭐️ Meet our supporters ⭐️

During our callout last Friday to assist an injured mountain biker one of our land rovers suffered a puncture due to the terrain we were operating on. Thankfully this happened after we had assisted the casualty and evacuated the rest of the cycling group off the hill to their cars.

A massive thank you to Neil and the team at Tyres Direct (Stirling) Ltd for getting our land rover back on the road, they donated their time and expertise at no cost to our charity, very much appreciated. 🙏
