More about Scottish Mountain Rescue

Scottish Mountain Rescue was founded in 1965 to provide a civilian mountain rescue service in Scotland, liaising closely with the Scottish Government, Police Scotland, Maritime and Coastguard Agency, Scottish Ambulance Service, and other partner agencies involved in land based search and rescue.

At the heart of mountain rescue in Scotland are its volunteers. Team members and team leaders give up their time to provide a free service to people who need assistance. Teams are distributed across Scotland and ready for deployment at the request of the Police to deal with a wide range of incidents.

The core capability of any team is to carry out search and rescue operations in challenging and at times hostile environments, in all mountainous and upland terrain throughout Scotland. Many teams also support their local community resilience plans and in periods of extreme weather will provide a range of support functions as required.

With charitable status this hard working organisation is funded largely through voluntary contributions. In order to continue to deliver the high standard of service they provide 24/7, 365 days a year, donations are essential. By partnering with Charity Car, Scottish Mountain Rescue can now accept old car donations to help fund its vital work - enabling its volunteers to save lives.
