2017


Ranger Events:


All the walks are led by one of the Rangers. It is important though that you think of your own safety and that of any children for whom you are responsible. Remember too that these are country walks in the Highland weather so please dress accordingly. Bring sturdy shoes, or boots, a picnic and a sense of fun. The Rangers reserve the right to cancel any of these events.  

Walk Grades: A is easiest, D most challenging, including very rough ground and sometimes steep climbs. Sorry watching wildlife is not usually compatible with taking dogs.
