https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-51473800..Following Monday's incident, they have sent the team a donation along with gifts of whisky, wine and chocolates..Responding to calls on social media for people to take out insurance before heading into Scotland's hills, or for people to be charged for being rescued, the team said such measures would be unworkable.
" The four men, who were visiting Scotland from abroad, were taken to Belford Hospital in Fort William for treatment."

 So were they students at a British university or tourists? An earlier incident involved experienced climbers from abroad who were not familiar with the Ben.
