Tayside Mountain Rescue Team was called out three times at the weekend to help stranded hikers make their way down from Courier Country peaks.
The service described the weekend as “quite a busy spell” and urged anybody planning to scale any of Tayside’s scores of popular summits to make sure they are well prepared.
On Friday night into Saturday morning, a Coastguard helicopter crew searched for a lost hillwalker near Glenshee, successfully locating the individual.
Later on Saturday afternoon, the crew were back out in the hills at a Munro near Blair Atholl.
The helicopter was again circling a Perthshire mountain, having been called to assist with getting a hiker with a leg injury off the hillside.
Sunday proved far from a day of rest for the volunteers, who made their way out to Mount Keen on the Angus border to recover another two hillwalkers.
The team used SARLOC, a smartphone app designed to help track missing walkers, to help trace the pair of wayward climbers, who were safe and well.
A spokesperson said: “As winter is coming and the weather is changing, please make sure you have the proper equipment – including map, compass and head torch.”
Tayside Mountain Rescue Team is made up entirely of volunteers who live in Perthshire, Dundee and Angus.
Team members are on call every hour of the year to help anyone who is in trouble in the mountains and their service relies on donations.
