Glencoe rescue
« on: 22:07:46, 27/08/17 »
Many of us on the Forum will be familiar with the Lost Valley walk in Glencoe. Unfortunately yesterday, a female walker fell into the gorge from the path. She was seriously injured. Her rescue was quite technicaland was carried out very professionally by the local MRT. She was taken to hospital by helicopter.  Trust she makes a speedy recovery.

Even just wet ground can make this walk difficult. Glad she is ok.




Bill we are up in Glencoe in October I hope you can get along and meet up with us for a walk and a pint.
