Countryside ranger walk affords fabulous views of the Findhorn (16/06/09)
A challenging guided walk with great views is being offered to people with a good level of fitness by Highland Council’s Countryside Ranger Service on Sunday 21 June.
From 9am to 5pm the 18.5 Km / 11 mile long guided walk will follow the world famous River Findhorn through old settlements, spectacular glacial scenery and a wealth of wildlife all of which has connections with the upper reaches of the river. The river has attracted people and wildlife for thousands of years.
John Orr, Highland Council’s Countryside ranger for Inverness East and Nairn said: “This is a lovely walk over upland and along the river before descending through an abandoned village and returning over the hills. There are some amazing views of the Findhorn and the glacial valley it runs through and there’s good chance of seeing mountain hares and lots of different birds of prey up there.”
The walk is over rough and sometimes steep ground so a good level of fitness is required. To book a place, or for further information please telephone: 01463 702932.
The aim of the Highland Council Countryside Rangers is to promote public enjoyment and appreciation of the countryside and to conserve wildlife.
