Emergency crews, including a coastguard rescue helicopter dispatched from Prestwick, were called into action on Thursday to airlift an injured walker to safety at a Fife beauty spot.
Ochils Mountain Rescue Team were part of a multi- agency response after a female walker was left stranded on steep ground at Largo Law shortly after midday on April 15.
Mountain rescue volunteers worked with the Scottish Ambulance Service’s Special Operations and Response Team, SORT, and Maritime & Coastguard Agency helicopter 199 sent from Prestwick to help treat the injured woman before evacuating her to a waiting land ambulance further below.
It’s understood the walker suffered a broken ankle and was later to hospital but later released.
Largo Law, popular East Neuk beauty spot for walkers all year round, is a 290m high distinctive ancient volcano and the tenth highest hill in Fife.
