Equipment warning after man rescued
Bookmark and Share
Mountain rescuers have advised those venturing up on the mountains to make sure they are well equipped with walking gear before setting off.

The comments came from leader of the Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team Mick Holmes after a man was rescued from a remote bothy below An Teallach in the Scottish Highlands, the Press and Journal reports.

He had spent the night up the mountain after becoming separated from his colleagues as the light faded and had not gone out adequately equipped for the trek.

Mr Holmes described the individual, who had managed to descend to the bothy in the morning, as "cold and embarrassed", adding that those who go up the mountains in the winter should be well prepared and not have to navigate a descent in darkness.

An Teallach consists of two munros (Scottish mountains over 3,000 ft), Bidean a' Ghlas Thuill being the higher at 3,484 ft, while Sgurr Fiona is 3,477 ft.
