Volunteering to save lives
Arrochar Mountain Rescue Team (AMRT) has 30 volunteer team members who are available 365 days of the year when requested by Police Scotland.
AMRT comprises of men & woman from a variety of backgrounds and employment but we all pride ourselves with the team's professionalism and a thread is shared between all... the simple desire to assist with someone in distress on the hill.
What we do?
- Maintain the ability to deploy personnel and operate effectively and safely 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, in all weather conditions.
- Work in challenging and at times hostile environments in all mountainous terrain throughout Strathclyde.
- Deploy under the authority of the Police.
You can help us
There is a significant cost to delivering this service. Scottish Mountain Rescue Teams do receive grant aid funding from the Scottish Government and assistance from our major sponsor the Order of St John. While this funding is greatly received it does not cover all of the teams running costs and as such we still rely on public donations and fundraising activities to enable the team to operate to the high standards expected.
