Hillwalkers and climbers have been delighted to get back to Scotland’s mountains in recent weeks.
But Scotland’s weather hasn’t been playing ball with people’s dreams of returning to the heights.

Kev Mitchell Vice Chair of Scottish Mountain Rescue Said: “Despite the challenges the ongoing situation is putting on our volunteer team members, Scottish Mountain Rescue Teams remain ready to respond to anyone who gets into difficulty in the outdoors, wherever that may be, in any and all weathers. If you are injured or in need of help in the outdoors call 999, ask for POLICE, then MOUNTAIN RESCUE.”
