❌CALLOUT - 13/11/2018 ❌

November 13, 2018

The team were called out at approximately 1615hrs this afternoon to search for a male walker who had become lost descending Goatfell in the fog then benighted as darkness fell. 
Thankfully contact was made by phone with the lost walker and we were able to establish that he was somewhere along a deer fence in the area.
Team members set off at various locations along the fence line below Goatfell and by a stroke of luck Coastguard 199 was training in the area at the time and also gave assistance.
After a short while, Rescue 199 located the Male in the Glenshant area and hovered above him to guide team members who were close by to his location.
Although a bit distressed and with a few cuts and bruises after taking a small tumble, the casualty was thankfully unharmed and able to walk off the hill with the help of team members.
The team would like to remind anyone venturing into the hills at this time of year, that daylight hours are now far shorter and a fully charged head torch, map and compass with the skills to use them are highly advisable.
