A programme of free guided walks led by The Highland Council Rangers on behalf of the Flows to the Future Project is almost upon us. The walks take place at various locations across the Flow Country from Wednesday 18 May.

There are a variety of distances and terrains available from the spectacular hill walk over the historic Moine Path by Ben Hope or the chance to explore Berriedale Strath or the remote Assynt “cnoc and loch” landscape. Alternatively visit the ancient carved stones of Clachtoll peat road.

It’s a great opportunity to see peatland landscapes and wildlife, last year’s walks included breathtaking sights of golden eagles and red deer as well as a closer look at the impressive plants and invertebrates found within the Flow Country. There are sure to be some great opportunities to capture this fantastic area with your camera.


The week's walks include:

Wednesday 18 May – Moine Path

Thursday 19 May – Clachtoll Peat Road 

Sunday 22 May – Berriedale Strath 

Tuesday 24 May – Drumbeg Peat Road
