Great loss to Trossachs Search & Rescue

Stuart Ballantyne, Secretary of Trossachs Search & Rescue which provides First Responder Services in Dunblane, has died suddenly from COVID-19. Stuart will be known to many in Dunblane through the provision of HeartStart & CPR classes in the town, including at the New Golf Club, at local schools & for the guides. TS&R also maintains some of the many defibrillators in Dunblane. In 2018, once it had become clear that the Dunblane First Responders group had ceased providing a service in Dunblane, the Community Council invited Trossachs Search & Rescue to extend its area of FR operation to include Dunblane. Stuart was instrumental in making this happen in spite of the many obstacles put in his way. He will be sorely missed. Steve Mason
