Dundonnell mountain rescue team has paid tribute to one of its members who died after falling in a remote part of the Highlands earlier this month.
James Edwards was setting up a radio relay station on the Munro, Ruadh Stac Mor, for charity event The Great Wilderness Challenge when he slipped. Ruadh Stac Mor is a remote Munro in the Fisherfield Wilderness.
Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team said Mr Edwards was seriously injured but still managed to set off a locator beacon. It was a long operation to get Mr Edwards to hospital in bad weather and the Teams and the helicopter worked so hard to save his life.
The team said his rescue work, humour and stories were “much missed”
See the link below from the BBC for more information on this tragic event.
My thoughts are with his family and friends.
Worth noting – A few days later the Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team were out again rescuing a walker who had fallen on Beinn Dearg East Ridge. It was an all night job and the casualty was taken by the helicopter below the cloud for if they were lucky a few hours sleep before work.
Thinking of you all.
