*POSTPONED* Guided Walk: Gaelic Folklore in the Landscape

Loading Events

Unfortunately we have had to take the decision to postpone this guided walk due to the new restrictions imposed by the Scottish government on social gatherings (2 households of up to 6 people). We hope to run the walk in the spring of 2021.

This guided walk, made possible thanks to funding from Bòrd na Gàidhlig, will introduce you to Gaelic folklore from the Callander area and beyond. Our volunteer guide Deely will retell legends, such as Diarmad’s boar hunt at Ben Gullipen, and will also discuss the meanings and pronunciations of selected Gaelic place-names.

We will meet at Tom na Chisaig (Hill of St Kessog) interpretation board in the Meadows carpark at 11am and from there we will do an “out-and-back” walk that takes us along the NCN7 to Allt nan Sliseag, just past Bochastle. We will be back at the car park by approx. 2.30pm.

Places are limited so booking is essential. Any children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

We have a Covid specific risk assessment in place to help us maintain the safety of our leaders and participants.

For more information or to book a place please contact Ross at ross.crawford@lochlomond-trossachs.org
