Arisaig Moth Trapping & Butterfly Walk

Organiser: BC Highland Branch & Arisaig Community Trust.


Target Species: Grayling and other butterflies and moths.


Date: Sunday 30th July.


Time: 10.30 for 11am start, finishing about 4pm.


Meeting place: Land Sea and Islands Centre, Arisaig.  The Centre is located in the middle of the village at NM660863 and signposted from the main road.


Description: After gathering at the visitor centre for tea, coffee and home-bakes we will check the contents of moth traps set locally the night before, followed by a field visit to a suitable location nearby (possibly Morar beach) to look for Grayling and other butterflies and day-flying moths. 


Approx. duration: About five hours, but you are welcome to come along just to see the moths in the morning (11 till 12ish) or just for the field trip in the afternoon (from about 1ish).  However, please let us know if you plan just to come to the field visit so we can arrange exactly where/when to meet you.


What’s needed: Please bring a packed lunch if staying all day.  Tea, coffee and home-bakes will be provided on arrival. 


Any other information: Oh and don’t forget your swimming costume and a towel!
