“Two climbers have been rescued after becoming lost in poor weather conditions.

 

Police and mountain rescue teams were called to the Glen Doll area, north of Kirriemuir in the Angus Glens, at about 9pm on Wednesday.

 

A spokesman for Police Scotland said the pair had got into trouble after losing their way in “appalling” weather conditions.

 

He added that the men were experienced climbers and were found safe and well in the early hours of the morning.” – STV

Tayside Mountain Rescue Team:

“Some of the Team are just getting to bed after another successful rescue this evening/morning. A Full Team call out was initiated at about 10pm on Wednesday night for 2 missing persons in the Corrie Fee area of Glen Doll. Due to the weather conditions, Rescue 137 was not able to fly. The 2 casualties were located at 3.15am, very cold but unhurt, and were able to be walked off the Mountain by Team Members.
It’s still winter conditions out there, so please be careful whatever you are doing in the Mountains.”
