Missing walker found

monadhliathThe search for a hill walker reported missing after a day walk in the Monadhliath range, near Newtonmore, has successfully found the missing woman.  The alarm was raised shortly after 10pm on Saturday night and the Cairngorms Mountain Rescue Team, search and rescue dog handlers and an RAF helicopter had been searching the area until the walker was found shortly after midday on Sunday. The woman in her 30’s had been forced to camp out having got lost in poor weather conditions. The search team said that she was well-equipped and it is understood that she was well and did not require medical treatment.

In a separate incident, the BBC reports that a badly injured walker was airlifted for treatment following a fall in Kintail. It is reported that a policeman saw the injured walker’s distress signal from a torch while driving along the road and was able to summon help.
