Who We Are

Border SAR is the Mountain Rescue Team that covers the south-east of Scotland, including the Lammermuir and Cheviot hill ranges. All members of the team are volunteers who are on call 24/7/365 to provide an essential emergency service, not just to hillwalkers, but to the whole community through the wide range of incidents we attend.

You can find out more about the team by exploring the website or catching up with us at any of the regular appearances we make at ride-outs, farmers' markets etc. 

Remember that BorderSAR rely heavily on public donations to exist. There are many ways you can help us: donate money, arrange sponsored events, participate in the annual sponsored walk in the Autumn, etc. If you would like to know more, simply contact us - we are always happy to hear from our supporters.


What We Need

  • £50K for a 4x4 vehicle to replace our old Transit ambulance
  • A new team base in or near Kelso where we can store kit and vehicles and further our training programme 
  • Your donations - every one will help us continue to provide our vital emergency service anytime in any weather, anywhere in our region.
