A wonderful 7-mile walk with ecologist Roy Wiles observing the ecology of flowers, water and trees at this time of year.
You should be happy to walk at a moderate pace with frequent observation stops. There is some uphill walking although the gradient will not be protractedly steep. The terrain is not rocky or technical and is on footpaths. The schedule is not ‘punishing’ but we will be out all day at this lovely time of year – which of course includes our afternoon tea which is provided for you.
You will receive an equipment checklist when you book. We want you to be warm and happy on your walk. It’s important that you have clothes which are suitable for our changeable mountain weather and that we do not underestimate how changeable the weather can be: a good waterproof jacket, fleece jacket, hat and gloves, waterproof over-trousers, layers of thin clothing ideally wool or thermal, a rucksack and sturdy shoes or boots with a good sole.
Sorry but no dogs.
