Guided walk (August 2021)

Guided Walks

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions,  we were only able to host a few Guided Walks in 2021.  The reports from these walks are in Arion 119.  

We hope to be able to offer the full programme in 2022 and are currently contacting the walk leaders.

The guided walks programme is usually run between May & August and when the schedule is finalised the walks will be published on the BC events page as well in the April edition of Arion (issue 121).
