Skye Mountain Rescue Team

The Skye Team

I will be on holiday on skye for a week so I will contact the search and rescue team and see if I can photograph their dog as part of my project. Screen Shot 2014-10-07 at 21.18.41 The members of the Skye Mountain Rescue Team are local men and women from all over the island who give up their time to assist others in a time of emergency. The team members are all volunteers and receive no payment or retainer fee. Team members receive regular training in skills such as first aid, navigation, rope-work, working with helicopters, and winter mountaineering. Within the team we have a variety of skills including a search and rescue dog handler (SARDA), a team doctor, rope access specialists and several mountain leaders and guides.

From their website it looks like they have one dog. these are the only photos I could find of it.
