Lynwilg, Allt na Criche Path, near Aviemore

Target Species: Pearl-Bordered Fritillary & Moths

Date: Saturday May 17

Time: 09.45 for 10.00am

Meeting place: Carpark behind Aviemore Post Office accessed by turning into Myrtlefield from the main road through Aviemore and bearing right behind the shops to the carpark, grid ref NH896128 (OS sheet 36 – Grantown & Aviemore).  We’ll condense cars as there isn’t much parking then drive to Lynwilg and park at grid ref NH875110.

Description: A trip to see Pearl-bordered Fritillary, with a chance of some other butterflies and day-flying moths. 

Approx duration: 3 hours as the path is quite steep in places and we will take it slowly, although may be longer if the weather is good.

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
