Team Three Chimneys have just held a staff ballot and voted to make The Skye Mountain Rescue Team our Charity of choice this year. The Rescue Team is made up of a group of 35 volunteers who provide assistance to walkers and climbers on the Isle of Skye.

Their main area of operations is the Cuillin Mountains but they also assist the police and coastguard in searches along the Skye coast and other parts of the island.

When someone is in trouble on the hills, the police are called. If a mountain rescue is required, the Team are alerted and asked to meet at a specific point. They operate from two purpose built huts in Glenbrittle and Sligachan.

Their work is financed by public donations, grant aid and support from other charities. 

We have just held a very successful St. David’s Day Charity Lunch, which is the first of several  fund-raising Events and activities Team Three Chimneys will be organizing this year to support their work. 

The Skye Mountain Rescue Team is a registered Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation SCIO (SC038386).
