Glenfiddich to Glenlivet Walk - Thursday 16th September 2021
Part of Moray Walking and Outdoor Festival www.moraywalkoutdoorfest.co.uk/.../glenfiddich.../ .
Join the Rangers from Dorenell Ranger Service and Glenlivet Ranger Service for a walk up the River Fiddich all the way to its source then over the watershed to meet the River Livet. We’ll park at the finish point in Glenlivet and be transported by coach to the start at Bridgehaugh, south of Dufftown. The route will follow Moray core path SP29, going past Glenfiddich Lodge and up Glenfiddich itself where we’ll have an opportunity to see the Elf House cave and the McHardy stone. Once upon the watershed, we’ll hopefully have views across to the Cairngorms before following the Suie Burn down to the River Livet and out to Glenlivet.
Along the route, the Rangers will talk about the Cultural and Natural History of the area and will be on hand to point any wildlife along the route which could include Red Deer and various birds of prey including Golden Eagles and White-tailed Eagles.
Although starting off on patchy tarmac track the route is mainly rough landrover tracks with a number of small stream and river crossings. A larger river crossing towards the end can be avoided by a bridge further upstream but walkers should come prepared for potentially wet feet.
All proceeds of the walk will go to Prostate Cancer UK
