Meet just East of Amhunsuidhe Castle (NB 052 077) at 10am tomorrow (October 7th), and Thursdays October 12, 19 and 26th for guided treks through stunning Glen Cravadale and Glen Ulladale where herds of red deer congregate for the annual rut, an impressive mating display where males lock antlers in fierce battle to defend their hareems.
A further walk will take place on Saturday October 19th at Bogha Glas takign you to Loch Langhabhat.
The treks vary between medium (Grade B) hikes of 6 miles and difficult (Grade C) 10.5 mile routes and will last between 5 and 6 hours. Participants are advised to bring a packed lunch, waterproofs and come equipped with sturdy boots.
