Hebrides Mountain Rescue wishes to show the ropes to some new volunteers.
The charity is looking for people with a passion for the outdoors who want to learn new skills and help save lives in challenging situations.
The group, based in Church Street, Stornoway, was established 12 years ago and formerly known as Hebrides Search and Rescue.
They operate the length of the Outer Hebrides. The team consists entirely of volunteers who give up their time to train and help those in need in urban, hill and moorland environments. Team members are trained in basic mountain skills, search techniques and management skills, communications, advanced first aid, rigging and off-road, and ATV driving.
Over the years, they have responded to a diversity of incidents, from overdue walkers to crag-fast climbers, missing persons, and animal rescues.
On their website, Hebrides Mountain Rescue note: “We rely on all our team members to give up their own time to attend both training and callouts. This is a huge commitment, but in return, offers something back to the community and provides a great deal of satisfaction.”
