Exciting outdoor events at Glenmore next week
The Highland Council’s Countryside Ranger team will be running two fun events aimed at children and families next week both at Glenmore in the Cairngorms National Park and both working in partnership with the Forestry Commission Scotland’s local Recreation Ranger.
Saranne Bish the Council’s Ranger for Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey and Forestry Commission Scotland’s Ranger Lucy Ford are inviting families outdoors for a chance to either explore Glenmore in two very different ways.
The first event takes place on Tuesday 25 July and is called “Wolf Brother comes to life”. Why not come along and see if you could live in Toraks world? Participants will be invited to step back in time to the Mesolithic, a time before our ancestors used metal. How will we survive? What will we wear, what will we eat. How do we treat illnesses? In these exiting books written by Michelle Paver you explore how folk lived in times gone by. Do you think you have what it takes?
If you want to come dressed up you’d be more then welcome – the Rangers will be!
The event takes place at Glenmore between midday and 4pm and costs £4.50 for adults, £3.50 for concessions or £15.00 for a family ticket.
On Sunday 30 July the focus will be on four legged friends with the annual Top Dog Event running between midday and 4pm. Come along and have some serious fun with your dog. They’ll be an obstacle and obedience course, sausage races, an egg and spoon race and the usual hilarious activities. Entry is £3 per dog and there is no need to book – just turn up.
Glenmore is approximately 5 miles out of Aviemore towards the Cairngorm Mountains. Grid ref: NH 980 093
