BUTTERFLY FIELD TRIP - ABRIACHAN

Target Species: Green Hairstreak and Pearl-bordered Fritillary

Date:  Either Saturday 21 May or Sunday 22 May (weather dependant)

Time:  10 am until about 3pm

Meeting place:  Abriachan Forest Trust car park at NH 542 353. 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:  A walk along paths and tracks with a gentle uphill stretch. There are toilets at the car park.

What’s needed:  Bring a packed lunch - it’s a lovely site to explore and there’s plenty to see.

Whether the trip will be run on the Saturday or the Sunday will be decided nearer the time, dependent on the weather forecast. Please phone Mark a few days before-hand for the final decision.
