BIG BUTTERFLY COUNT: Butterfly walk for Scotch Argus and Common Blue (Perthshire)!

Posted on behalf of Butterfly Conservation
East Scotland. Butterfly walk for Scotch Argus and Common Blue

Join Butterfly Conservation for a walk up Craigower Hill to look for Scotch Argus and Common Blue butterflies.

Meet at the Ben Vrackie car park. Grid reference NN94385952. Nearest post code: PH16 5EL.

The walk will be led by Hamish Johnston who has regularly visited this site for the past few years.

This is also a great opportunity to take part in the Big Butterfly Count.

We will walk at approx. 2km by the golf course to the base of the hill and another 1km up the hill. The hill is quite steep but hopefully, there will be lots of stops to look at butterflies.

Wear stout footwear and bring a packed lunch. Sorry, no dogs.

We look forward to seeing you there!
