How would you sum up the job of a volunteer? "Long hours, no pay, horrendous weather, dangerous, exciting... and just great fun!"
Isle of Skye – The True Mountain Spirit
Taste our blend of the finest malt and grain whiskies and know that 15p from every bottle sold goes to Scottish Mountain Rescue.
You can’t help but be inspired by the unfailing commitment and dedication shown by the Scottish Mountain Rescue volunteers who work tirelessly to safeguard the lives of the many walkers, climbers and outdoor enthusiasts enjoying Scotland's countryside and mountains all year round.
Spread across 26 different volunteering teams, over 1000 volunteers make around 600 rescues every year. Impressive figures but things are getting tougher for the service. This past winter alone has seen eight avalanche-related fatalities, a huge increase on previous years. As more and more people take to the mountains, resources are being placed under increasing pressure.
That’s where we can help. By donating 15p from every bottle sold of Isle of Skye 8 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky, we can all give the volunteers of Scottish Mountain Rescue a smaller mountain to climb. The money raised in the first year will provide vital resources – new stretchers, SARDA rescue dogs and avalanche training.
The message is simple: help us help them, save lives.
