We are charity organisation consisting entirely of unpaid volunteers. The team has a written constitution and is run by a committee elected from amongst our members. We have a typical membership of about 25 volunteers who live around the team area and have demonstrated the necessary skills and commitment.
Our role is to assist Police Scotland with their public safety role in wild and mountainous country. When someone is in trouble on the hills in our area, the police are called. If it requires a mountain rescue callout, we are alerted by SMS message or telephone call. We routinely work with Police Scotland, the UK Search And Rescue Helicopter Service (HMCG), RAF MRS and neighbouring MRT in our search for the best outcome.
We organise our own training and co-ordinate our training standards with appropriate national bodies. Team members participate in the management and development of mountain rescue at national and international level.
We are proud to be a member of Scottish Mountain Rescue.
