Deep Time and Biodiversity Walk

Join Wayne Fitter from Scottish Natural Heritage for a deep time and biodiversity walk at Knockan Crag National Nature Reserve, in the North West Highlands Geopark. Learn more about the geology and biodiversity of the site in light of climate change, past, present and future.

This event is organised in response to An Talla Solais's summer exhibition, Murmur - Artists Reflect on Climate Change. It anticipates a deep time drawing workshop with Ellis O'Connor the following day. 

Climate change is a dynamic process, and some of our valuable habitats and species are at risk of loss or decline. Our National Nature Reserves can provide examples of how changes in land management can reduce pressures, or even provide new homes for vulnerable species. We can monitor extreme events, changes in climatic conditions, and the effect this has on our landscape. We can provide space for natural processes. And we can show this to people to help advise, educate and inform.

Where: Meeting in the Knockan Crag car park (13 miles north of Ullapool) at 11am. Sensible walking boots and outdoor clothing are essential. Please let us know if you'd like a lift or have space in your car to offer to others.

This is a 2 hour circuit with an optional 30 minute walk.

Please email Geraldine on with any queries or to book a place.
