πŸ‘They did It!πŸ‘Last weekend Ochils MRT supporter Billy and his dog Sunni successfully completed the West Highland Way. Billy and Sunni were raising funds for the team and we are absolutely humbled by their efforts and generosity. 🐾In February 2020 the team were callout out to assist Billy and Sunni. Sunni became unwell on the hill and Billy did a heroic job of carrying Sunni for miles until he realised he needed some help as it was getting dark and he was exhausted. 17 team members attended when requested but thankfully our team leader and two other team members managed to gain access by landrover then walked in to where Billy and Sunni were resting. We were delighted to hear that Sunni made a full recovery over the next few days. Thank you Billy and Sunni for all you have done for the team and your outstanding west highland way adventure 🐾#anydayanyhouranyweather #workingtogether Scottish Mountain Rescue ... See MoreSee Less
