Nature Festivals Unite in the South of Scotland for the First Time
For the first time ever, two of Scotland’s prestigious nature festivals are uniting to showcase over 150 family-friendly events taking place in the south of Scotland throughout April, May and June 2015.
The Dumfries & Galloway Wild Spring Festival (Scotland’s largest and longest running wildlife festival) has joined forces with The Scottish Borders Nature Festival to celebrate the diversity of flora and fauna that can be discovered throughout the area in a fascinating programme of events. To mark Scotland’s Year of Food & Drink, both festivals are also set to reveal a series of events with a special focus on the area’s outstanding natural larder.
Wild Spring Festival 2015
Saturday April 4th to Sunday May 3rd.
Look out for some new events including a brand new organisation running Nocturnal Wildlife Tours using state of the art thermal wildlife cameras. www.wildlifetours.co.uk
New Eco Bothies open!
The Galloway Activity Centre is proud to announce the opening of their fantastic new Eco Bothies. The Bothies are off-grid modular pods designed and manufactured locally by Architect Sam Booth of "Echo" Eco Houses. The Eco Pods were featured on series 1 of Channel 4's "George Clarke’s amazing spaces" program. We are proud to say that our two Bothies on the banks of Loch Ken are Sam’s first off the production line.
This project is being part-financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community through the Dumfries & Galloway Leader 2007-2013 Programme and is supported by Scottish Natural Heritage, working with Scotland's people to care for our natural heritage.
This site is presently managed by the Southern Uplands Partnership on behalf of a range of statutory agencies, non-governmental environmental bodies and tourism businesses from across Dumfries and Galloway.
