The team currently has 30 members with a variety of skills and experience amongst us. The team provides Search and Rescue assistance to walkers and climbers on the Isle of Arran which is located in the Firth of Clyde, off the West Coast of Scotland.
Initially, a call will be raised via Police Scotland, and if it is necessary a call-out will then be initiated. Team members are contacted and assemble at the team base, briefed on the nature of the incident, and then head out to the appropriate location(s).
All team members at Arran mountain Rescue are experienced hillwalkers or mountaineers with a vast amount of local knowledge between them.
Team members are on-call 365 days a year and are unpaid volunteers giving up their time to help people in need.
The vast majority of our funding is raised through donations.
