Walks & Wanders Around Helmsdale

Saturday 27 January 2024

Meet at Timespan 11:20

Join us on Saturday 27th for our first accessible walk around Helmsdale, going through Emigrants’ Monument and Castle Park. Meet at Timespan, 11.20am

This week’s walk is a well-trod local walk, and it’s great for beginners and for blowing away the winter blues. We’ll be sharing the history of the old harbour built in 1818 for the herring trade and the tragic triple murder plot at the castle in 1567 that inspired Shakespeare to write Hamlet! The walk will be followed by the screening of the short film in Timespan entitled “Coronation Celebrations in Helmsdale and Golspie, 1937

Walk specifics: Easy-moderate; estimate duration 1 h; pavement and grass; steps

“Walks and Wanders around Helmsdale” is a series of accessible walks around Helmsdale and District with our trained team of friendly volunteers. Along the walks, we will share stories and engage in mindfulness exercises. Each walk will end at Timespan, where Community Cardholders get discounts at the Riverside Cafe and free entry to the museums and digital exhibits, and the Peoples Mobile Archive and Youth Library will be open for browsing and borrowing.

We look forward to seeing you on one of our walks. Supported by Paths for All- Health Walks #walksandwandersaroundhelmsdale
