Walk Tall

News suggests mountain walking is as safe as it was 30 years ago!

Great news if you’re a walker or a climber, or even if you’re part of Mountain Rescue as according to The Mountaineering Council of Scotland, mountain rescues have fallen to the lowest recorded point in the last 30 years.

The annual report suggested that he number of mountain rescue incidents could be due to its own mountain safety programme of courses promoting and teaching self reliance in the outdoors.

So feel free to strap on your walking boots, your jacket and your overtrousers and head for the Scottish hills- just don’t forget your common sense!
