 River Beauly Butterfly Walk

Organiser:  Butterfly Conservation Highland Branch


Target Species:  Whatever we find!


Date: Sunday June 16


Time: 10.00am        


Meeting place: Small car park at the south side of Black Bridge, NH 497439 (OS map 26). Take A831 (Cannich) road for 1 mile, turn left signed Kiltarlity, go downhill and across bridge.


Meeting place: Turn off A835 about 1km NW of Contin, signposted Loch Achilty. Single track road for approx. 4 miles to Luichart Power Station. Park just beyond in vicinity of bridge. OS map 26, NH 393571. There are two small car parks further on which we may be able to access.

Description: This will be a nice leisurely stroll along the banks of the River Beauly, all on good tracks and mostly flat. Hopefully we should see a number of different species of butterfly as the terrain varies, plus some dragonflies at the pond.

Any other information: The total distance os about 3 miles.
