One Storr incident turned into several for Skye Mountain Rescue over the weekend.

The team arrived to assist as casualty with a suspected broken leg, only to hear another person had possibly broken their ankle on the path near the car park.  

The Scottish ambulance service assisted the second casualty, while Skye Mountain Rescue Team provided first aid to the initial person.  The first casualty was transferred to the Western Isles Hospital in Stornoway by Rescue 948.

Meanwhile, a request for assistance was being dealt with for a female who was cragfast.

Finally, the team were approached in the Storr car park to assist with a cut finger.

They said: "We've been called out to The Storr several times over the last few weeks for lower leg injuries so watch your step if you are planning on heading up as the path can be very slippery - even in the dry!"
