My story

With the unusually hot weather we’ve been having recently my dad has been on my mind alot.

In June 2016 my dad started out on a walk that would take him into the hills above the village of Dornie, Wester Ross. He didn’t return at the appointed time and eventually later that day Kintail Mountain Rescue started the search that would continue over the next few weeks. I cannot really describe to you what it was like in those first couple of weeks when the search and rescue teams were mobilised, but it was a huge effort comprising both Kintail and Skye MRTs, the police, the Coastguard, family and friends. I remember the teams working tirelessly and in pretty horrific heatwave conditions.

Sadly my dad never returned to us and his body was found 6 weeks later. Kintail MRT brought him home to us.

Both MRTs worked constantly and I have the utmost respect for their commitment and dedication in helping to keep us safe in the outdoors. They are a voluntary organisation, and many of the people who came to our aid during that time were self employed, giving their time in so many ways.

Many of my friends and colleagues enjoy and work in the mountains and landscapes of Scotland, and we are privileged to have such an organisation as SMR should we ever need them. SMR rely on charitable donations and I hope that you can spare a few pence or pounds to help support their efforts.

Update as of 4th September - I’ve just seen the fund raising total and I am so emotional about how generous you have all been. Many, many thanks for your contributions and kind and thoughtful words of support. I am truly grateful.

Just to let you know that I am being supported on the Illuminator Run by a very good friend Ms Elaine Anderson. Thanks so much for coming on board! Xx
