Ballavoulen, north-west of Alness

Meeting place: Car park at Ballavoulen, NH 572740 (OS sheet 21 - Dornoch, Alness & Invergordon area). From the A836 Struie Road at Alness take the minor road to Boath and follow for approx. 5  miles.

Over a period of several years we have recorded 15 species of butterfly in this glen.

Approx. duration: Approx. 4 hours depending on the weather.
