Mountain Aid Lectures – in November.

Mountain Aid is a Registered Charity with three simple objectives:

  • To find ways of helping to improve the quality of life of anyone permanently injured on the Scottish hills
  • To promote training and education in the skills required to enjoy the Scottish hills safely, thereby reducing the likelihood of accidents
  • To maintain a close relationship with the Scottish Mountain Rescue services, granting them funds for projects, equipment or activities which might otherwise not receive funding

If you or somebody you know is a hillwalker or climber, and you share our passion for the hills, then we hope that our objectives are valuable to you.

Mountain Aid are pleased to announce Heavy Whalley MBE as speaker for the Step Up to Winter talks series this November in #Dumbarton#Kilmarnock#Dumfries and #Cupar.

Heavy was a member of the RAF Mountain Rescue team for 36 years and has been involved in over 1000 Mountain and over 80 Aircraft incidents in mountainous areas. Join us for an evening of winter walking tales and tips that will leave you ready to get out into the hills this winter.
