Three Mountain Rescue Teams came to the assistance of an injured walker.

Kintail Mountain Rescue Team received the initial call out to the casualty, who had taken a tumble when descending from the South Shiel Ridge.

The Coastguard helicopter was unable to reach the walker due to low cloud, but Skye and Glenelg Mountain Rescue Teams assisted with carrying the casualty over difficult ground.  

The Kintail Team praised the casualty, who had gone walking well-equipped, administered First Aid to himself correctly and gave an accurate grid reference to help the teams locate him.
