Celtic Rainforests !..
21 February 2017
Plantlife Scotland and the National Trust for Scotland are running a special day to celebrate the Celtic Rainforest and the woodlands of the Coille Mhòr.
Dates - Tue 21 Feb from 09:30 - 12:30
Location - Balmacara Estate & Woodland Walks
We will transport you from Balmacara Square to Loch Achaidh na h-Inich by minibus to join staff from the National Trust for Scotland and Plantlife Scotland and then walk back through the magnificent Coille Mhòr. This woodland is home to a rich diversity of unique small plant species that cover branches, trees and boulders. It is these moss, liverwort and lichen species that make Scotland’s Celtic rainforest internationally important. Admire the views along the way and find out what makes the Coille Mhòr such a special place. Find out about the associated folklore, the stinky sticta and the tree lungwort.
This guided walk will last for about 3 hours and is approximately 2.5miles/4km on good surfaced paths and tracks with one moderate but rather long ascent. Bring walking boots, warm and waterproof clothing, a snack and a hot drink.
