A busy time for the team over the last few weeks including several call outs over the last 4 days.
Last Friday a trials rider was airlifted to Raigmore from the Trotternish Ridge after falling and fracturing their lower leg.
12 Skye MRT were in attendance as were the Stornoway Coastguard helicopter crew .
We wish the casualty a speedy recovery and hope they regain their sea legs soon.
On Saturday we were called out to help a runner who had fallen close to the ‘Tourist route’ of Sgurr nan Gillean after the rock they were standing on gave way.
Despite a badly fractured wrist and head injury, they were able to make their own way down to Allt Dearg Beag at which point 5 team members were on hand to offer some pain relief and assistance with the walk out to Sligachan.
Yesterday morning, a party of two were escorted off Trotternish ridge after finding themselves unable to navigate down in worsening weather conditions.
Nine skye MRT personnel helped them to safety in high winds and driving rain.
