In an emergency call 999 and ask for Police then Mountain Rescue
To celebrate National Walking Month, our friends at HARVEY Maps have sent us a few maps which we are able to offer as giveaways over the coming weeks and months.
HARVEY Maps have been producing maps since 1977 and are based in Doune, Perthshire. They publish maps to cover popular walking and climbing areas in the UK and Ireland, including the 1:25,000 Superwalker XT25 maps which are exceptionally clear, easy to read and 100% waterproof – ideal for those summer days in Scotland!
The first map we have to offer as a giveaway is the Arran Superwalker XT25.
This map covers Arran Mountain Rescue are who provide search and rescue assistance across the Isle of Arran. The 30 volunteers making up the team are on call 365 days a year. The island of Arran is located in the Firth of Clyde off the west coast of Scotland and is 432km2. Arran is only 56 miles round by road but its mountains in the North, although not quite Munro status, are some of the most rugged and beautiful in Scotland and provide an accessible challenge for walkers, hill runners and climbers making it one of the busiest Island tourist destinations in the summer months.
For further information check out their website or follow them on social media.
This will be a regular feature, so keep your eye out for the next SMR team profile and the Superwalker XT25 map to accompany it.
If you would like to be in with a chance to get your hands on a Superwalker XT25 map of Arran, please complete this form. We only have one map per post to giveaway but you never know . . . it could be you!!
And remember, if you are in the hills and are in difficulty and need assistance, for Mountain Rescue Dial 999 or 112 then ask for ‘Police’ then ‘Mountain Rescue’
