Struie Hill near Alness, Butterfly Walk

Organiser:  Butterfly Conservation Highland Branch


Target Species:  Whatever turns up!


Date: Sunday July 1


Time: 10.30am        


Meeting place: Small car park at NH650849 on the west side of the B9176 (Struie) road. The track up Struie Hill is close by. Not the viewpoint car park at NH652858.


Description: There are very few records of both butterflies and moths for this lovely little hill, hopefully on this July outing we can add many more. The path starts from where we can park and is approx. 500ft of easy ascent with a short steep section just below the top. From there we can follow a good path along the ridge as far as time permits. The walk up the hill will be very slow with lots of stops as befits our aged state (that’s Andy and myself!).


Approx. duration: Approx. 4 hours depending on weather.


What’s needed: Lunch, waterproofs, suitable footwear.


Leader name: Margaret Currie
