Two rescued in bad weather in Cairngorms


Two people who had planned a two-day trip through the Lairig Ghru mountain pass in the Cairngorms were rescued after encountering wintry weather.

Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team, which went to their aid, said the hillwalkers had also reported having had a “major equipment failure”.

Members of the team walked into the Lairig Ghru and escorted them to safety on Saturday night.

Earlier in the day, the team helped a walker in the Northern Corries.

The walker had dislocated a knee.
