For Mountain Rescue call 999 ask for 'Police' then 'Mountain Rescue'

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.

Community groups are welcome to visit us and we provide first aid cover to a number of outdoor events.

Volunteers from Ochils Mountain Rescue team have been mobilised tonight to assist critical care nurses to access patients in the Forth Valley NHS area, the team have Landrover 4x4 vehicles and trained drivers and are accustomed to operating in very inclement weather and can reach areas 'normal' vehicles would struggle with.

Temperatures are expected to drop towards -9 tonight so the correct equipment for venturing outside is important.

Ochils MRT are part of the Forth Valley Voluntary Sector Local Resilience Partnership which was activated earlier today and we are working alongside our colleagues at International Rescue Corps at Grangemouth and Lothian 4x4 Response who are also assisting with 4 x 4 vehicles and trained personnel.

Ochils MRT volunteers are embedded in the communities they serve and this allows us to respond quickly and provide support at times of need. We wish the nurses well in their vital work and applaud all the volunteers who are supporting them.
