@wurdsmiff: Where we currently live has one of the hospitals that serves airlifted walkers and climbers from the Cairngorms. A disproportionate number of the casualties are from countries with "real" wilderness, and "real" mountains. The ones who can still give reports afterwards all say variations on "I didn't know the weather could change so much so quickly", along with "I was only 1000 metres altitude" or "I could see streetlights not far away".
