Weekend walk to Whiteness Head

The Highland Council Countryside Rangers are inviting people to join them on Sunday (23 August) for a guided walk to Whiteness Head. The 6km/4mile coastal route between Ardersier and Nairn passes through salt marsh and shingle ridges to the end of a remote spit sticking out into the Moray Firth.

The walk starts at 11am and will last until 3pm. Anyone coming along should wear suitable clothes and footwear and bring a packed lunch. Places are limited so anyone interested in coming along is asked to book a place by telephoning 01463 255291 or e-mailing rangers.inverness@highland.gov.uk. Details of the meeting up point will be given out at the time of booking.
