Sad day yesterday. Large search on Ben Starav where Lochaber MRT and ourselves were helping Glencoe MRT to search for walker missing since Saturday. Conditions were difficult as Ben Starav is a very complex mountain with very challenging terrain. The weather did not help with frequent lightening strikes all around the mountain. Some brilliant spotting and flying by RN 137 assisted rescuers from Glencoe and Lochaber to get to casualty and allowed recovery by helicopter. Oban team members then had an epic retreat off the hill with lightening and swollen rivers, eventually forcing one team to be recovered by helicopter as rivers had risen to high to cross

Our thoughts with family and friends.
