A multi agency rescue involving the Arran Mountain Rescue Team (AMRT), the Arran RNLI and the Arran Coastguard, took place early last week in a remote area near Lochranza.

On Monday August 5, AMRT were called out at 4.20pm to assist a female walker who had fallen and injured her shoulder in the Fairy Dell area, near Lochranza.

Team members reached the casualty and treated her but due to her injury and the location, assistance was requested from the Arran RNLI and the Arran Coastguard.


Working together and making use of their combined resources the injured woman was evacuated by the lifeboat to Lochranza where she was transported to hospital for further treatment.

A spokesperson from AMRT said: ‘We wish the casualty a speedy recovery and thanks to everyone for their help.’
