Event description

Description

Summer Solstice at the Shielings.

Come and join us for an outdoor walk and talk to the Sheilings above Loch Ness. Learn about summer plant lore and old dairying activities from Abriachan's Suzann and Christine as we walk up the hill. Once we reach the Shieling local astronomer Stephen Mackintosh will give a talk on ancient astronomy and how many cultures would mark the solstices in days gone by.

Some traditional refreshments will be available at the top after the walk (30 mins uphill).

Meet: Friday 21st June after the Abriachan Highland Games at 8.30pm.

Park at the fank carpark NH559348. For detailed directions please advance email abriachanforest@gmail.com or call 01463 861236. All ages welcome.

Due to the outdoor nature of this event it may be cancelled due to very poor weather. Please check the 'Abriachan Community 'or 'Highland Astronomy' Facebook pages for details on the day. This event is part of the Star Stories Astronomy and Storytelling programme.
