Dusk guided walk and chance to explore a classic Highland Glen

September in the Highlands can be the most incredible time of year with vibrant colours and a shift in the seasons causing wildlife to be on the move.  Two very different walks are being led by The Highland Council Countryside Rangers in the Inverness West area this month to give people the chance to appreciate the change in seasons. 

The first of these is an evening walk alongside the River Beauly.   ‘Dusk at the River Beauly’ is on Friday the 18th of September from 6.30pm -9pm. 

Ranger Jenny Grant who will be leading the walk describes the gloaming as one of her favourite times of day. She said: “It’s an exciting time with lots of opportunities to see and hear all manner of wildlife including bats, fish jumping, the evening bird chorus and more as day becomes night.”

Participants are asked to meet at the Black Bridge, Kilmorack. Grid ref: NH 497439 and to bring a torch. The guided walk costs £4 for adults, £3 for concessions and a family ticket for £11.

The following week, on Thursday the 24th September, the rangers will be leading a 18.5 km/11.5 mile long walk that delves in to the depths of Glen Affric. The walk around Loch Affric will explore the wildlife and history of a glen often regarded as the most beautiful in Scotland.  Please book a place on this walk or email or phone for a chat if you would like to find out more. The cost of this walk is £15.00 for adults and £7.50 for concessions.
