Moth Trap & Butterfly Walk - Abriachan
Date: Saturday 15th July
Time: 09.30am until about 4.00pm
Meeting Place: Abriachan Forest Trust car park at NH 540 353 (What3words: cutaway.outhouse.closed). Leaving the Inverness to Drumnadrochit Loch Ness-side road, follow the minor road through Abriachan and around the north shore of Loch Laide. Just after the loch, take a track to the left into an area of woodland. Just along here to your left you will find the Abriachan Forest Trust car park.
Description: We’ll have a look through one or more moth traps run overnight. Weather permitting, there should be an amazing array of moths, of all colours, shapes and sizes, to be seen up close and personal!
The moth trap session will be followed by a walk to look for butterflies, weather permitting, along paths and tracks with a gentle uphill stretch. There are toilets at the car park.
Butterfly Conservation’s annual Big Butterfly Count starts this weekend. You can help with this Citizen Science project!
What's Needed: Bring a packed lunch - it’s a lovely site to explore and there’s plenty to see.
