A woman is recovering after having to be airlifted off the Lomond Hills over the weekend, it has emerged.
The alarm was raised shortly before 1pm on Sunday when the woman, who is said to be in her 60s, suffered a suspected broken ankle while out walking.
Members of the Ochils Mountain Rescue Team, the Scottish Ambulance Service, Police Scotland and the Coastguard Rescue helicopter 199 from Prestwick were all called upon in the response, with the stricken hillwalker flown off the hill to a waiting ambulance.
She was taken to Kirkcaldy’s Victoria Hospital but is expected to make a full recovery.
A spokesperson for the Ochils Mountain Rescue Team said: “We wish the lady a speedy recovery and thanks as always to R199 for some great flying.”
