Overdue Walker Found Safe by Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team at Loch Mullardoch

In a late-night rescue operation, sixteen volunteer members of the Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team responded to an alert concerning a walker overdue from an expedition in the hills north of Loch Mullardoch, a reservoir in Glen Cannich, Ross-shire.

The operation took place on Thursday 22nd February in the evening, highlighting the team’s readiness to respond to emergencies in challenging conditions.

The alarm was raised, prompting a swift and coordinated search effort by the team.

By around 3 am, the missing walker was found safe and well near Loch Mullardoch.

Despite the ordeal, the walker was in good spirits, thanks in part to the team’s provision of warmth, hot juice, and chocolate bars.

The rescue team noted that the walker had been well-equipped for a winter’s day in the mountains, though the day had proved tougher than anticipated.

The Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team, comprised entirely of volunteers, is dedicated to assisting those in need in the mountains and surrounding areas.

Operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the team’s life-saving work is supported by donations from the public and its supporters.

This incident serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of outdoor activities, especially in winter conditions, and the importance of being well-prepared.

It also underscores the invaluable service provided by mountain rescue teams, who ensure the safety and well-being of outdoor enthusiasts in Scotland’s rugged landscapes.
