Stay safe – Stay local – Stay well.

It’s been 26 days since the last mountain call out. That’s the longest time between call outs Scottish Mountain Rescue Teams have seen since the foot and mouth outbreak in 2001.

We can do this.

Stay Safe, Stay Local, Stay Well

From Scottish Mountain Rescue.

Scottish Mountain Rescue represents 24 volunteer Mountain Rescue Teams (including two Search and Rescue Dog Associations (SARDA), Scottish Cave Rescue Organisation and the Search And Rescue Aerial Association – Scotland (SARAA – Scotland) with over 850 volunteers. We also represent an additional three Police teams and one RAF team.

Scottish Mountain Rescue, founded in 1965 as The MRCofS, is the representative and co-ordinating body for member Mountain Rescue Teams in Scotland. The organisation, an independently registered charity is administered by a volunteer Executive Committee, supported by three members of staff.

We facilitate the provision of a civilian mountain rescue service in Scotland and liaise closely with the Scottish Government, Police Scotland and Fire and Rescue Services, Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, Maritime and Coastguard Agency, Scottish Ambulance Service, and other partner agencies involved in Land based search and Rescue. Scottish Mountain Rescue has charitable status and is funded largely through voluntary contributions (registered Scottish Charity – number SC045003).

I like so many others are missing the hills but so lucky where I live to have the sea and the forest. There is much to see the birds are out and the gannets were fishing in the sea yesterday. They were diving into the sea and finding fish that were just off the shore. It was spectacular as were the Primroses that are just coming out on the cliffs. We live in tricky times but always thinking of those who live in the cities with limited space.

Primroses are a stunning plant at this time of year.
