Gairloch Seashore & Snorkel Trail Discovery Day - Wednesday 11th July

The Gairloch Seashore & Snorkel Trail Discovery Day will be held at Gairloch Golf Course Beach on Wednesday 11th July from 10am to 4pm.

Come along & find out about the amazing diversity of marine wildlife!

How many differnt kinds of crab and starfish live around An Dun? How many fishes inhabit the low-tide lagoon? How fast does a sea hare move? Who eats what?

We'll be exploring the seashore using assorted nets and other sampling equipment to look for animals living in the sand and in the shallow water around the headland nearby.

Peter Cunningham (Skye & Wester Ross Fisheries Trust), Jenny Grant (Highlife Highlands Countryside Ranger) and Mike Kendall (Marine Biologist) will all be on hand to help with activities, identification and explanation.

Introductory family snorkelling safari sessions at the far end of the beach will be led by Noel Hawkins (SWT Living Seas Project); warm drysuits will be available for hire from Guy Melville (Happy Diver UK - drysuit rental & sales); please book your snorkel session in advance to ensure your place (numbers limited).
