You will need to book on most of these events so please visit https://booking.highlifehighland.com/ and use the booking reference number for the event given above. 

It costs £9.73 per visitor to operate our Countryside Ranger Service.  We make no charge for some events but we rely on your donations to help us protect our highland wildlife and heritage.

All the walks are led by one of the Rangers. It is important 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/ boots, and a sense of fun. 

Walk Grades: A is easiest, D most challenging, including very rough ground and sometimes steep climbs.
