RESCUE teams had to scale Arthur’s Seat to save a dog that had fallen 15 metres from the summit onto a cliff edge.

Around a dozen firefighters and rope technicians were scrambled to the drama near the peak of the natural landmark at 9am this morning after an Irish Setter fell onto a ledge during a walk with its owner.

The dog, named ‘Moz’, was trapped on the shelf for around two hours before line rescue teams hauled it to safety.

A spokeswoman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said, despite the large drop, the dog had been returned to its owner “safe and well”.

Crews from Marionville station and a line rescue team from Tollcross and Newcraighall attended the incident.
