Drop in Community event at the Roche Moutonnée, Dulnain Bridge.

In glacial terms, a rôche moutonnée is a rock formation created by the passing of a glacier.  This beautiful community managed site on the western side of the Cairngorms National Park desperately needs some hands-on love and attention particularly after such a long absence due to COVID. Join your local Countryside Ranger and Volunteer Cairngorms to restore this site to its former glory while using your muscles in the great outdoors!

As with all ranger events we will be enjoying fresh air, company and wildlife sights and sounds. Suitable for families but no unaccompanied children please. Wear old warm clothes and decent boots or wellies. Warm drinks and biscuits provided. Bring lunch if you’re planning to do the whole day!

Time: 11am – 3pm

It costs £9.73 per visitor to operate our Countryside Ranger Service. We make no charge for this event but we rely on your donations to help us protect our Highland wildlife and heritage.
