Braemar and Aberdeen Mountain Rescue Teams were involved in a rescue on Cairn Toul Saturday night — Scotland’s fourth highest mountain.
A group of walkers got lost on Cairn Toul in the wee hours of Sunday morning during a 24-hour hike from Cairngorm.
The group of four men, expecting a standard late-August Bank Holiday summer hike, ran into trouble after inclement weather set-in and with temperatures fast-plunging, they made the emergency call.
Mountain rescue reportedly teams struggled with the wild weather but eventually managed to rescue the walkers, who were found “wet, cold and tired” with one “hypothermic”.
“We found them, got them warmed up and were able to help all down to below cloud-base for uplift by helicopter,” said Malcolm McIntyre, of Braemar Mountain Rescue.
“All now safe, well, but tired,” continued McIntyre; “(They) did not appreciate how arduous the Cairngorms can be compared to other areas down south nor the weather; feel-like temperature minus 10 last night on top of Cairn Toul.”
A windchill of -10C (14F)?
In the UK?
Nothing to report here, right BBC?
Looking ahead, the rest of the week will hold unseasonably cold across much of western Europe — in fact, barring a one-day warm-up expected on Thurs, Sept 3, the anomalously-frigid conditions look set to persist until at least mid-September:
Even NASA appears to agree, if you read between the lines, with their forecast for this upcoming solar cycle (25) seeing it as “the weakest of the past 200 years,” with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Prepare for the COLD — learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
