Spring is sprung, but hillgoers warned not to get carried away

Mountain experts are warning Scottish hillgoers not to get carried away – on a stretcher.

Walkers and other outdoor enthusiasts taking to the uplands for the first time after winter can still be caught out by the weather and conditions.

Mountaineering Scotland and Scottish Mountain Rescue have joined forces to alert hillgoers full of the joys of spring to the hazards that hang around even after warmth returns to the hills.

The two organisations said: “With the Easter break already here for some, and just around the corner for others, many more people are looking forward to spending time in the mountains.

“Conditions are generally good, with a milder than normal winter meaning many paths are already clear of the winter’s snow.

“Icy snow, sudden changes in weather, and general fitness can all spell trouble.”
