We Just Never Know What's Coming...

What We Do...

LMRT attend incidents that are remote from the road side where the normal emergency services are unable to operate. We provide rescue services in a wide range of scenarios, from climbers stuck on the sheer North Face of Ben Nevis, to canoeists trapped in steep-sided gorges.

Why We Do It...

We are all keen outdoor enthusiasts who understand that no matter how fit, experienced or well-equipped you are, things can always go wrong. We know that mountain rescue volunteers often provide the only chance of rescue for those lost, injured or stuck in remote or inaccessible locations.

How You Can Help Us …

LMRT depend on the public’s continuing donations and fundraising support. The costs involved in running a mountain rescue team are high. A single-use smoke-flare costs around £10, whilst an 800m rope, which might only be safe to use once, costs around £1000. Donate today and help us save lives.
