Two people stranded in Glen Tilt were escorted to safety by mountain rescue teams.

Search teams from Braemar Mountain Rescue (BMR) in Aberdeenshire and Tayside Mountain Rescue were on hand to escort two people stuck in heavy snow conditions in Glen Tilt.

The glen is situated in the north of Perthshire, and runs for around 11 miles from the village of Blair Atholl to the remote Falls of Tarf in the eastern Highlands.

The route is popular with walkers, mountain bikers and those wishing to enjoy scenery with the majority of the path on good tracks, passing through woodland and farmland before reaching some steep hills.

BMR posted a video and images on X showing their teams out late on Thursday evening helping to trace the two stranded people in question.

They said it was “proper winter weather” when the search was under way, and that with the help of the Tayside team, the two people were escorted south.

The Braemar team provide rescue response to the Southern Cairngorms, Glenshee, Lochnagar and Deeside areas.

They are urging anyone who requires assistance in Scotland’s mountains to first contact Police Scotland in the event of an emergency and ask for Mountain Rescue.
