2013 is the Year of Natural Scotland – come along to our Highland Council Countryside Ranger events to explore and learn about the Highlands’ natural beauty and rich wildlife and heritage.

You don’t have to be a hiker to enjoy many of our events! Our events cater for all interests, ages and levels of fitness. All of our walks are graded from:
Grade A – Walking on an established path, for all fitness levels

You can find all the summer holiday events in our booklet and using our Online Calendar.
For young children we have character events including In The Night Garden, Peppa Pig , The Gruffalo, and Winnie the Pooh.
We also have lots of walks and activities for children of all ages including kite-making, pond-dipping, junior ranger events and mini-beast safaris. There is plenty to help occupy the school holidays!
