Search for and learn about some of the beautiful butterflies and moths of the Cairngorms, a stronghold area for several species. Depending on weather and seasonal variation, these could include Pearl-bordered Fritillary, Green Hairstreak and Emperor Moth, which all have particular habitat requirements. We will open a light trap set the previous night to view and release any moths caught before walking a short circular route to look out for day-flying species.

Booking essential:

Event organised in partnership with Aberdeenshire Council Ranger Service for Cairngorms Nature BIG Weekend.

Suitable for adults and older children (8+), under 16s must be accompanied.

Wear outdoor clothing suited to weather and stout footwear and bring a drink and snack, plus if you have them, binoculars.

Includes walk of about 5km/3 miles with 150m ascent on landrover tracks or paths with gravel or soft ground, uneven in places with some short, moderate to steep inclines.
