Event Details

You’ll know that Scotland was once covered by glaciers – in the ‘ice age’. But how do we know? What is the evidence the glaciers left behind?

This short, guided walk along Glenshee and led by one of Scotland’s most renowned Palaeoenvironmentalists, Dr Richard Tipping, will take you through a section of the Spittal of Glenshee, introduce you to the abundant physical evidence and transport you back 20,000 years to a very different world.

Places are limited to 12 participants and booking in advance is essential – find out more and secure your place HERE.

This session is part of The Cateran Ecomuseum’s innovative Museum of Rapid Transition programme which aims to reconnect people to heritage and traditions that are hidden and/or at risk, showing their practical relevance for more regenerative ways of living, bringing people together and enhancing a sense of place, stewardship and community resilience.

The walk is being delivered by the Cateran Ecomuseum with the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund, thanks to National Lottery players, as well as the Paths for All Smarter Choices Smarter People programme and the Cairngorms National Park Authority.
