Glen Orrin Field Trip

Organiser: BC Highland Branch


Target Species: Pearl-bordered Fritillary


Date:  Sunday May 21


Time:  10:30 am


Meeting place:  Car park at NH474514 (OS sheet 26 – Inverness & Loch Ness). From Marybank on the A832 take the minor road south for 1.5 miles to Aultgowrie. On the south side of the bridge turn west for 200 yards to a small car park for visitors.


Description: We have been counting the Pearl-bordered Fritillaries here every year since they were first found in 2009. Following a third season of scrub clearing by local branch volunteers, we would like you to join us and hopefully see the fruits of your labours! There is a short uphill section to get onto the track, followed by a gentle climb to the start of the forestry. Hopefully some PBF to be seen plus day flying moths.


Approx duration: 4 hours depending on weather.


What’s needed:  Lunch, boots and waterproofs.


Any other information: We have always called this area “tick hill”, so be warned.


Leader name: Margaret Currie
