Story

An immense amount of work has been done by BMRT to establish the likely circumstances in which our beloved dad, Jim Robertson, went missing. It is likely that he left Bob Scott's Bothy early on the morning of Wednesday 2nd March 2016, two days before his 61st birthday. It is likely that he headed to the second highest mountain in the UK, Ben Macdui (in the Cairngorms). It is likely that he has had a tragic accident and has succumbed to the elements somewhere on this mountain.

Setting up this page is our way of sharing our deepest heartfelt thanks with the volunteers of BMRT and we would be extremely grateful for any donations, no matter how small they may be. Sadly our dad will not be the last person to need the help of BMRT. We appreciate that our fundraising goal is high however the running cost of BMRT is 'tens of thousands - every year, year after year' and all of their work is 'done on a voluntary basis.'

There are no words to express our feelings of gratitude towards all of those who have been involved in the search thus far. Regardless of the outcome, we are truly overwhelmed by their kindness, compassion and commitment. We are now hoping that BMRT can recover our dad's body and bring him home to us. Once we have him home, we can say our final goodbyes and return our dearest dad to the hills, where he belongs.

We only wish our dad could see just how much has been done for him... He would be so amazed and deeply moved.

Dad, may only the purest snow ever fall on you x
