Climbers rescued after getting lost


Two climbers were rescued from a mountain in Glen Coe after getting lost in mist.

The men called for help on Saturday after becoming stuck up the 953-metre high Aonach Eagach ridge.

The stranded climbers were found by the rescue team at about 15:45.

A Police Scotland spokeswoma­n said that they were “cold and wet, but otherwise okay”.

It was Glencoe Mountain Rescue’s third call-out in two days.

On Thursday a hiker died after falling more than 300ft (91m) in the same area.
