Autumn walk at Merkinch Local Nature Reserve this weekend

The Highland Council Countryside Rangers are inviting people outdoors to enjoy an autumnal stroll at Merkinch Local Nature Reserve in Inverness during the afternoon on Saturday 14 November.

Inverness based Ranger Katy Martin said: “The leaves are changing and the seasonal wheel is turning. We’ll be looking for what autumn brings to Merkinch Local Nature Reserve as we stroll along the paths, taking in the sights, sounds and scents.”

She advises anyone coming along to dress warmly and wear stout walking.

This event starts at 2pm and lasts for an hour and a half. Anyone interested is asked to meet up at the Old Ferry Ticket Office, Kessock Road, Inverness. This guided walk will cost £4 for adults, £3 for concessions and family tickets are available, costing £11 or £7. All children must be accompanied by an adult. 

Anyone wishing for further information should contact 01463 255291 or e-mail
