IN AN EMERGENCY: Call 999 and ask for Police then Mountain Rescue.
Kintail Mountain Rescue Team
Kintail Mountain Rescue Team is a charitable organisation run entirely by volunteers. Our role is to support Police Scotland in delivering their public safety obligation in remote and mountainous environments. We are part of Scottish Mountain Rescue, which is made up of over 1000 volunteers throughout the country.
We are on call 24 hours / 365 days of the year - Any Hour, Any Day, Any Weather
Who We Are
Our team consists of about 25 full team members who live around the team area and have demonstrated the necessary skills and commitment. Our volunteers come from a diverse range of backgrounds, professions and interests. The common traits we all share is a passion for the hills and a desire to help those in need.
WHAT WE DO
Our role is to assist Police Scotland with their public safety role in wild and mountainous country. When someone is in trouble on the hills in our area, the police are called. If it requires a mountain rescue assistance, we are alerted by SMS message or telephone call.
WHAT WE NEED
The team relies heavily on public donations to maintain our income and therefore our effectiveness. Rescue operations in Kintail rely on ordinary members of the public making donations. The small population living in our area of operation means that donations from those living further afield are extremely important to our efforts to make this a safer place for locals and visitors alike.
