Chance to stretch your legs this weekend with two Highland Council Ranger guided walks
As summer has arrived in the Highlands, what better time is there to get out and about and explore some of the stunning scenery and learn more about the plants and animals who share it with us?
On Saturday (11th June) the Highland Council Rangers will be leading a guided walk to the hill fort at the top of Ord Hill in North Kessock. The climb, from 10am to 12.30pm, will take walkers up through the pine woods to enjoy the views from the fort site, learning about the history and environment as they climb.
If that’s not enough of a leg stetcher for you, starting at 11am on Sunday (12th June) is a longer walk of approximately 10km (6 miles) to Whiteness Head. The route will take walkers alongside saltmarsh and shingle to the end of this unusual and remote spit. This day-long walk costs £9.00 for adults, £5.00 for concessions and £24.00 for a family while the Ord Hill outing costs £4.50 for adults, £3.50 for concessions and £15 for families.
Booking is essential for both of these walks so please call 01463 255291 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Full details of where to meet up and advice on what to bring will be given at the time of booking
