Skye Mountain Rescue received two call outs in one day earlier this week.

The team were called out to the Quiraing and tasked to assist a walker with a lower leg injury.  

Shortly after assisting, the team received a second call out for a casualty who had fallen on the descent out of Coire Lagan.  The casualty had dislocated their shoulder.  

Coastguard helicopter was available to assist, but low cloud necessitated taking the coastal route to Glenbrittle before transporting the team part-way up to the mountain.  Everyone was off the hill by midnight.
