Nature in Scotland – August 2023

Walks and Walking TrailsWhen we survey our community every time there’s a chat, our natural surroundings are often a part of answers that may feel unrelated. The fact is we have lovely surroundings and whether the subject is food or festivals, the natural world is often a part of what we all feel makes Scotland so great. So we thought it was well past time we make “Nature in Scotland” our theme for a monthly chat. Give it the starring role is deserves.

In addition, some members of our team are going through a tough time, and being out in nature always helps the mental health, doesn’t it! So it felt extra appropriate. Our own team member Fiona Drane is swimming 10 miles in September to raise money for dementia. And we’d be ever so honoured if you chose to support her at this link. Her target is £500.

We hope that you get some inspiration or ideas from this month’s hour and we look forward to seeing you online on Wednesday 30th August, 9-10pm Scotland time.
