Target Species: Northern Brown Argus, Small Blue, Small Copper, Grayling. Also Six-spot Burnet moths
Organiser: BC Highland Branch
Date: Wednesday July 2
Meeting place: Car parking area at NH862753 in Balintore (OS Sheet 21 – Dornoch, Alness & Invergordon area). This is reached by turning right off the B9166 at Balintore, and driving past the harbour for about 200-300 metres. There is also a car park at the harbour, with public toilets.
Description: we’ll walk along the path between the shore and the village, after about 1km we leave the village behind. After about another 1km the path heads up a narrow path up the hillside which is quite overgrown in places.
Approx duration: 3 to 4 hours, maybe longer depending on how far along the path we go and what the weather is like.
What’s needed: Packed lunch, the path is steep and rough in places so appropriate footwear will be needed as will waterproof clothing in case of bad weather.
Any other information: Purple Oxytropis grows on the steep grassy slopes on the hill.
