Oban MRT were called out at 01:00am on Saturday morning to assist an injured hill walker on Beinn an Aighenan above Glen Kinglass. The casualty had fallen on steep ground near to the bealach between Beinn an Aighenan and Ben Starav. Thankfully conditions were clear and helicopter Rescue 177 was able to fly direct to casualty and recover to hospital. The team was stood down while approaching the RV in Glen Kinglass.

The casualties location was in the remotest part of our area, and without helicopter assistance would have resulted in a very long and protracted rescue, so a big thanks to Rescue 177.
