Join this special Storywalk in the Cairngorms to share in Palestinian and Scottish folktales, understand communities’ connection to the land, and heritage and tradition.

We’ll hear tales of cranky old women (and men), ghouls, fairy folk, warriors, kings and goddesses, with a backdrop of mountains and woods.

Mint tea included!

Suitable for all ages, most suited to 7+.

Covid-19 update: This walk is fully outdoors with a small group, and we can socially distance if needed.

Description of walk
The walk is on good tracks and narrow footpaths, and is around 2miles/2.5km long. A reasonable level of fitness is required.
Dogs are allowed but only if others booked onto the same walk are okay with this. If you want to bring a dog please let me know ahead of booking.

What to wear/bring
Please dress appropriately for the weather! This usually means warm, waterproof clothing. The weather can change quickly, so please bring waterproofs with you just in case. We will stop frequently on the walk so make sure you will be warm enough. Please wear strong, sturdy shoes suitable for uneven paths (no flip-flops!) and a sit pad/mat is a good idea for when we stop for drinks.

What I will bring
I will bring wild tea, a bag of tricks, and a smile. I will also have a First Aid kit with me just in case!
Covid-19: I will also bring hand sanitiser.
