Online entries are now open for our popular Annual Mountain Rescue Experience Day. You can choose a 15mile route or a shorter 5 mile family walk, and enter as a small group/family or an individual. The day will be based at the Watch Water Reservoir, just outside Longformacus in the Lammermuirs, and well behaved dogs are also welcome!

As before, the team will be manning various 'Mountain Rescue' stations en route, demonstrating techniques and equipment used in our call outs and rescues.
