Findhorn Dunes Walk
26 June at 11:00 am - 1:00 pm£7
Join The Findhorn Dunes Trust, a charity set up by gift in 2000, to explore and discover the importance of the 175 acres of dunes along the Moray coast.
We shall walk around much of the area to see the varied, enduring, but delicate nature of the dunes and their plant cover. The area is now firmly established as a site of National Importance for lichens, and we’ll explore many of these and other plant cover, including some invasive species.
On route, we’ll also see the Trusts’ work in looking after this area and a chance to see a demonstration on pine sapling removal. On a clear day, there are expansive views across the Moray Firth to Sutherland and Caithness. The Moray Firth has a rich marine habitat, and a variety of wildlife can be spotted from the height advantage of some of the larger dunes.
On the walk, we shall see several remnants of industrial archaeology and evidence of further coastal erosion.
Meet at the car park at the north end of Dunes Road – 10 mph limit. GR 047648. Dunes Road is a RIGHT turn off the B 9011 at GR 045637 just as you emerge from the tree lined part of the road after the FINDHORN place name sign.
