Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team

Glencoe Mountain Rescue has been providing a free rescue service in the Glencoe area since 1961. Run entirely by volunteers and hugely reliant on donations for funding, the rescue service extends to mountains, rivers, lochs, caves and the sea across North Argyll and on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula.

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Fred was always an outdoors person and he loved hillwalking so much. He climbed 218 Munros in all, a lot of them with his friend Gordon. 

On Saturday 23rd July 2016 Fred fell while walking at Aonach Eagach Ridge in Glencoe and our family will be forever grateful for the volunteers of the Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team for carrying his body off the mountain.

Glencoe Mountain Rescue team members are unpaid volunteers and it costs tens of thousands of pounds every year for the team to operate. A very small part of this funding comes from the Scottish Executive. However, the bulk of the funding comes from fundraising and donations. The running costs of the team run to tens of thousands of pounds each year, and without these donations the team simply would be unable to operate at the current level.
