East Scotland, Borders - Eildon Hills Walk
Saturday 5th August 2017, 10.30am-4.00pm
Eildon Hills, S Of Melrose

This will be a full day event, finishing maybe 3.00 - 4.00 pm.

Meet at Melrose Health Centre car park (grid ref NT545341) at 10.15 am or at the walk start at 10.30 am - this will be along the 'cemetery' road at the Rhymer's Stone (grid ref NT562336).

It'll be quite steep in places and we will take it at a slow pace but only suitable for moderately fit people.

We'll ascend Hill North, then visit Mid Hill and Little Hill before a low level route back to the start.

Lots to see - butterflies & moths and other insects, birds, plants, a little geology and archaeology and fantastic views.

Wear appropriate shoes/boots and bring a packed lunch.

This event is taking place during Big Butterfly Count, the largest insect citizen science project in the world. Why not download an ID chart and take part in a 15-minute count during the event, which runs from 14 July - 6 August? The results help us see how butterflies are faring across the UK.
