Taking the High Road

A New Way to the Rescue

Galloway Mountain Rescue Team took control of their new £28,000 Land Rover

this week at a presentation at Newton Stewart Police Station on Monday night. 

The team raised the cash with help from the former regional council, the lottery, and fundraising. Team Leader, Ian Livingston told the gazette, “The new vehicle will be a tremendous help in speeding up our response time when attending call-outs.  It will also be a great aid to training.”

40 years - 1975-2015

We formed on 6th November 1975 following a request from the Chief Constable.  We were originally known as ‘Galloway Hill Search and Rescue Unit’ and operated as a sub-group of Moffat Hill Search and Rescue.  Over the years we’ve gone from strength to strength.  Follow our story here.
