North Coast 500 Wildlife Festival 2016
The Highland Council Countryside Rangers will be presenting a wide range of events in this year’s North Coast 500 Wildlife Festival which will focus on the wildlife, heritage, history and nature travellers on the iconic route can spot.
The fun and family-friendly activity programme focuses on the amazing wildlife, heritage, history and nature of the area with events such as guided walks, puffin watching, boat trips, safaris and much, much more. There are opportunities to look for puffins, golden eagles, badgers, bumblebees, otters, seals, dolphins and more with an experienced guide. If you want to climb a mountain, go for a breath-taking coastal walk, sit and watch birds or partake in an art workshop then this could be for you.
Andy Summers , Senior Countryside Ranger for Caithness and Sutherland said: “These are perfect activities to keep anyone occupied on their North Coast 500 trip! All who comes on these events will be amazed at the range and diversity of our wildlife and for many this could be their chance to learn about and hopefully see things they would not otherwise and all this in some stunning scenery.”
