You can help us

There is a significant cost to delivering Mountain Rescue in Scotland.  All Scottish Mountain Rescue Teams  do a lot of individual fund raising. Scottish Mountain Rescue Teams receive grant aid from the Scottish Government and assistance from our major sponsor St John Scotland.  This funding, gratefully received, covers approximately 25 – 50% of individual team costs depending on the size and specific demands on the team. 

Scottish Mountain Rescue represents 23 mountain rescue teams in Scotland. You can support mountain rescue in Scotland by donating to your local team or to Scottish Mountain Rescue. If you donate to Scottish Mountain Rescue and have a preference on how your donation is spent please let us know and we will do our best to meet your wishes.
