Mountain rescue may point to need for better equipment as weather closes in
Bookmark and Share
A woman has had to be helped out by mountain rescue after a fall in the Scottish Highlands.

The 37-year-old from Surrey suffered the accident at the weekend in Glen Nevis and 14 members of the Lochaber Mountain Rescue team came to her aid, Grough reports.

After treating her at the scene near the Falls of Steall, they took the accident victim down to Fort William, where she is being treated at the Belford Hospital for non life-threatening injuries.

The risk of falls and injuries may grow as the weather becomes more autumnal and then wintry in the months ahead, which could mean investing in walking boots with a strong grip and fleeces is a good idea.

For ladies heading outdoors, checking they have the right women's outdoor clothing could be very important to avoid getting into trouble.

Lochaber contains some of Scotland's highest mountains, with Ben Nevis being one of four over 4,000 ft.

The others are Aonach Beag, Aonach Mor and Carn Mor Dearg.
