In an emergency call 999 and ask for Police then Mountain Rescue
One post per week for May and then one per month, starting from May 2022 National Walking Month
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!
This time we are offering a Fannichs: Seana Bhraigh & Ben Wyvis Superwalker XT25 map as a giveaway.
The territory that Dundonnell MRT covers is vast, approximately 2,600 square miles in the North West Highlands of Scotland. The area is made up of remote, rugged terrain and is home to no fewer than 39 Munros and 75 other great mountains. Mountains such as Coigach, An Teallach, the Fannichs and Ben Wyvis. In order to cover such an extensive area, the team have their main base at Dingwall (north of Inverness) but have smaller bases at Dundonnell and Ullapool with vehicles stationed at Cannich and Mellon Charles.
The team, which is currently made up of 36 volunteers on the callout list and 5 in training, is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to help anyone in difficulty on the hills, mountains or crags in their area.
