Perthshire Wildlife Seasonal Walks

We run a number of different walks across the seasons which will be regularly added here. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to find out when we add a new walk.

Spooky Species for Halloween

Bats, rats, moths and toads, are they really spooky?!

Discover why these species are actually our good friends and find out how bats catch thousands of midges every night, using a bat detector! This is a great location to find bats, which hunt for their spooky prey along the River Tay.

This is a fun family walk with games for the children – wear sturdy shoes, wrap up warmly & bring a torch as it will be dark by the end of the walk.

There will be the opportunity to interact with live and friendly ’spooky species’!

PRICE: £10pp or £30 for a family (2 adults + 2 children)
GROUP SIZE: Min 5 people – max 15 people
TIME: 6pm
AVAILABLE: 27th October 2019, meeting on King St, Stanley. Meeting location will be e-mailed on booking.

Brilliant Bats and Bloomin’ Bluebells

Wild Scottish bluebells are looking beautiful just now! This guided walk takes us through one of the most amazing bluebell woods of Perthshire, near Murthly, where we discover the folklore and stories surrounding the ‘Fairy Flower’ as well as why bat supersenses are so special, with batty games. These native oakwoods are renowned for their wildlife and we should enjoy sightings of lots of wildlife, including picking up navigating bats on our bat detector! The walk is about 2 miles long, on fairly flat but rough ground. Please wear sturdy shoes and bring waterproofs, as well as binoculars if you have them.

Meet at the new car park on the Murthly-Kinclaven road at 8.30pm (walk will last 1.5 – 2 hours). A map of the meeting location will be e-mailed on booking.

PRICE: £10pp or £30 for a family (2 adults + 2 children)
GROUP SIZE: Min 5 people – max 15 people
TIME: 8:30pm (1.5 – 2 hours)
AVAILABLE: May 29th & June 5th 2020

Food for Free – Foraging Walk along the Tay near Murthly

A river in Perthshire on a sunny day

This walk is perfect for people who have ever inquisitively nibbled dandelion leaves, or munched a handful of wild berries picked when out for a  walk – or thought about making some soup out of a wild patch of nettles. We will discover how much nature has to offer us on our doorstep – both for food and medicine. This is a flat walk alongside the River Tay and in its woodlands and we should see plenty of wildlife as well as edible plants. Wear sturdy shoes and warm clothes/waterproofs – we will have to cross a burn!

Meet at Murthly Castle car park, Murthly. This is on Stagecoach bus route 34.  A map of the meeting point will be e-mailed on booking.

PRICE: £10pp or £30 for a family (2 adults + 2 children)
GROUP SIZE: Min 5 people – max 15 people
TIME: 1.5 – 2 hours
AVAILABLE: May 10th 2020 at 11am, June 28th 2020 at 2pm
