The team responded to a call from Police Scotland just before 18:00. The Scottish Ambulance Service had requested our assistance to extract a 57 year old female walker on the West Highland Way, approximately 2 miles North of the Inversnaid Hotel.
We asked that the Loch Lomond Rescue Boat, from Luss, was tasked ASAP and contacted ARCC regarding helicopter assistance. While the boat crew were enroute, Navy Sea King R177 flew in and extracted the casualty from the scene and took her directly to hospital. The rescue boat then ferried the casualties companions to their campsite at Inverarnan.
Our thanks to RNAS Gannet and the crew of the Loch Lomond Rescue Boat.
The stand down text was sent at 18:59 with 13 members enroute or on scene.
