Ideas for things to do when you're out and about.

As well as lots of planned events throughout the area, there are other ways to get more out of your visit!
A walk or cycle ride doesn't have to be just a trip from A to B. Why not do something extra on the way? Or find out more about what you're seeing - from wildlife to landscape and history. There's a lot happening in this area, and we want to let people know what's going on - from guided walks to Highland games.

Going out? Why not do something extra?

Here are events programmes including guided/ranger-led walks, by the local Ranger Services, the National Trust for Scotland and other organisations.

We want to hear about your village fairs and Highland games - tell us what's happening and we'll include your event in our Local section! There's also a link to the local Farmers' Markets schedule. There is also a table of all the events we know about, month-by-month.

Do you have an event to advertise? Or do you have a fun activity you'd like to share? Let us know! Fill in an Events Form and we'll put your event on this website.

Want something to do while out for the day? How about some simple activites for the family? Why not take an identification chart and find out more about the wildlife you see on the way? We'll be adding to the Activities section of this site, with links to other sites and our own ideas for cool stuff.

Celebrate Biodiversity in 2012!

2011 - 2020 has been designated as the Decade of Biodiversity. To celebrate this, the Local Biodiversity Action Plan team want to highlight the amazing diversity of North East Scotland with a series of 'Wildlife Counts' events. Find out more about the plants and wildlife around us, and help the North East Scotland Biological Records Centre reach a Million Records by the end of the year! Come along to an event and we'll show you how. Why not come along to our BioBlitz Event at Haddo Country Park on 23 June? Download the programme for the day here! Or take part in the Moray event on 1 July at Drummuir? See here for details.
Find an event on our map - we'll add to this as we find out what's on!
