Six Highland hill-walkers have been rescued by Kintail Mountain Rescue Team (MRT) after an 11pm callout to the vital service.

Last night (May 14), a group of six walkers and their dog took the wrong path when they were coming off the South Glen Shiel Ridge, soon becoming stuck in steep rocky ground.

Kintail MRT said: “The team assembled and made their way up the path to locate them and navigate through some difficult ground.

“Once the split group of walkers were located, they were escorted safely off the hill and taken back to their campsite in the early hours of the morning – all very tired but well. The team wish them a safe journey home and are glad everyone is all ok.”

Kintail MRT relies on public donations, and is made up entirely of volunteers who are on call 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day to help anyone who’s in trouble in the mountains.
