WREN - Wester Ross Environment Network

Proposed field meeting, Ullapool, 23-27 June 2016

Posted on

The Ullapool area has been known for its outcrops of carbonate bedrock (“Durness limestone”) since at least 1767. As well as updating some records from Ullapool itself, I should be grateful for help in re-surveying under-recorded areas nearby for the Atlas 2020 project: upper Strath Canaird (NC10/NC20); Beinn Eilideach (NH19L/R); Meall Dubh (NH29A); and Glens Achall & Douchary (NH29). There is also a ‘wanted’ list for Knockan Crags.
Ullapool is a popular tourist haunt and we know that accommodation that weekend is already very limited; early booking is strongly advised.
To book to attend the meeting (in whole or in part), please contact the Vice-County Recorder for the Botanical Society for Britain and Ireland: Duncan Donald, 16 Midtown of Inverasdale, Poolewe, Wester Ross IV22 2LW; croft16@btinternet.com; tel. 01445 781717.

WREN would like to thank the following organisations for their support:
Scottish Natural Heritage
The European Agriculture fund for Rural Development. Europe investing in rural areas
The Highland Council
The Scottish Government
