Bringing Ice Age alive in Corrie Fee in Glen Clova

Two free events are coming up in the stunning Corrie Fee National Nature Reserve at the top of Glen Clova in Angus over the next few weeks.

This Saturday, September 12, walk back through time with one of Scottish Natural Heritage’s professional geologists and a reserve officer, who will bring the dramatic Ice Age past of Glen Doll and Corrie Fee alive.

See Glen Doll and Corrie Fee in a new light, imagining an icy landscape like those that exist in Antarctica or Greenland today. Participants will also see the dramatic results of the three recent landslips in the Corrie. An expert will explain what happened and point out the other spectacular scenery in Corrie Fee.

On Sunday, October 4, walkers can join SNH’s professional deer stalker and a ranger to walk up the glen to find out about the rut in Glen Doll and witness our largest land mammal, the red deer. Participants will walk along the Dounalt loop path to watch and listen to the roaring of the rutting red deer stags in the glen, as they round up their harem of hinds and warn off other rival stags.

The walk on September 12 is from 11am to 4pm and on October 4 from 11am to 3pm. There is no charge to join the walks, but advance booking is necessary.
