Mountain Rescue England & Wales and Mountain Rescue Council of Scotland have produced three leaflets offering tips and advice on staying safe in the mountains. In particular, the leaflets provide advice on what to take, things to remember to do before you set off, things to be aware of whilst in the mountains, and emergency contact numbers.

The three leaflets include a general version, a version for the Lake District and a version for Scotland. They can either be downloaded by clicking on the links above or by picking them up in select outdoor stores.

So if you’re thinking about heading into the mountains, particularly during the colder seasons, have a quick read through of these leaflets to ensure that you stay safe and have a great time.
