Cairngorms Dark Skies and Wilderness Evening

Cairngorms Dark Skies and Wilderness Evening

Saturday 25th March 2023 from 18:00pm to 22:00pm

Online event by Adventures for the Soul

Come and say goodbye to winter time and hello to Daylight Saving Hours in the magical landscape of the Northern Cairngorms.

Run in collaboration with Fabian from AFS Mountaineering, this is about marking the change with a trip back in time to walk around the Northern Cairngorms at twilight into night.

Late winter, early spring in the Cairngorms is absolutely incredible. The winter snow often still glitters in the setting sun whereas it can get warm in the glens lower down during the day.

But this isn’t any old night walk. The location is also perfect for stargazing. If there are clear skies you’ll learn about the stars and the universe, ‘deep time’ and the landscape you’re walking through. It’s a fascinating place, retaining perfectly preserved relics from the last Ice Age.

And that’s not all. You’ll discover you how to ‘fine tune’ your senses through a little mindfulness so you’ll get even more out of the experience too. The result? Your WOW-factor will be ramped up too. And those worries you had earlier, may have disappeared.

Walk information

The walk will be around 10km (or roughly 6 miles), with a potential climb up one of the smaller hills (a gentle ascent of 1,500ft). However, this is more about exploring the senses, landscape and to experience night walking. Although there are good tracks around the area, a good level of fitness will be required.

Please note that this has already taken place on 25/03/2023
