Join local wildlife guide Megan for a Hidden Gem Short Walk on her local patch. There are 3 different walks to choose from, details below:
Orphir Bay Circular – This circular walk takes in a variety of habitats including farmland, coastal and woodland with a wealth of wildlife to see from birds to flowers and insects. Regardless of the season, there is always something interesting to see.
Swanbister Bay – This is a linear walk following a farmland track down to the beautiful Swanbister bay. At low tide we can watch a variety of waders busy feeding, whilst at high tide the bay hosts a variety of ducks and seabirds.
Gruf Hill – This short linear walk takes us along a peat track in the Orphir hills, to the top of Gruf Hill. Along the way we will watch out for raptors, owls and smaller birds like Stonechats and Skylarks. This area is home to a wealth of wildflowers and insects, and on a clear day the views over Scapa Flow are amazing.
It is possible to use the local bus service for all of these walks. Please mention this at the time of booking for more information.
Please wear walking boots, bring warm waterproof clothing, a drink and a snack.
