What’s On in Caithness and Sutherland?

Highland Council’s Countryside Rangers are pleased to announce the release of the "What’s On in Caithness and Sutherland" booklet for 2006.

The booklet is a partnership project with The Highland Council, Scottish Natural Heritage, Forestry Commission Scotland and RSPB Scotland and features many walks and events taking place in the counties through out the summer months.
The booklet provides basic information to highlight many of the organised opportunities to observe North Highland scenery and to learn about wildlife in the Caithness and Sutherland area.

Marina Swanson, East Caithness ranger said: "The What’s On includes over 300 walks and countryside events this summer which shows there is plenty going on in Caithness and Sutherland. Many agencies and community groups have contributed to the booklet and have helped to provide a diverse programme of interesting events.

"With wide ranging events such as rock pool rummages, cliff top and coastal walks, illustrated talks, mountain hikes, archaeology trails, Strath strolls, fossil hunts – there is something for everyone to enjoy."

Copies of the "What’s On" booklet are available at local service points and libraries or an electronic version is available from the Council's website. The Highland Council Planning and Development’s Countryside Rangers are supported by Scottish Natural Heritage.
