Mountain Rescue

Mountain Rescue in the UK is carried out entirely by unpaid volunteers. Help can be obtained from the rescue teams at any time of any day 365 days a year.

It costs a lot of money to keep a rescue team operational so any donations are gratefully received. Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team operates primarily in the northern part of the Cairngorms National Park.


Weather Information

Before you set off for an adventure in the mountains, or even low level terrain in remote locations, it is wise to check the weather forecast before you go.
