Lawyer in Ballachulish
Ballachulish is a small village in the Lochaber regions of Scotland and is surrounded by beautiful hills and mountains. The area is known worldwide for being an excellent holiday destination with a vast array of wildlife including otters, wild goats, minke whales and seals. One of the best ways to see the mountains is to go on a walk up the mountains. However, there are hazards and accidents can happen on the mountains if safety precautions aren’t followed.
Tips for avoiding accidents and injuries on mountain walks
- Before starting your trip, have a look at the forecast for the weather and bring appropriate clothing for the conditions
- Wear footwear with good ankle support and secure grip such as hillwalking boots
- Bring a map, compass and emergency equipment like a torch and first aid kit
- Take enough food and drink for all members of your walking group and some extra in case you spend longer than expected on the mountains
- Make sure you let friends or family know you are going on a walk up the mountains
- If you are taking children on the walk, make sure the walk suits their abilities and choose a walking route with an easy and safe retreat
