Dalvey, Dyke and the Dump
£ 10.00
Dalvey, Dyke and the Dump - for MWA members
Free for MWA Members only.
£ 0.00

A gentle circumnavigation of routes ancient and modern from Forres. Free for members of the Moray Way Association. Moray Wastebusters are inviting us to drop in for a little surprise.

Our walk gives a chance to visit many little known stories of the past. The route is easy walking but passes through a rich variety of landscape. We’ll keep an eye open for interesting flora and fauna as we go and finish up by visiting a site which is trying to preserve our environment and communities for the future.
This route will take us through some of the ancient centre of Forres to follow, then cross the Findhorn. We’ll take time to look at some of the sites of historic interest as we go.
Over the river, we have an invitation to go through Dalvey before following the Muckle Burn to Dyke. There will be an opportunity to enjoy some hidden treasures in this pretty village before taking a track to the fringes of Culbin Forest as we turn back towards Forres. As we cross the river again we’ll look for where locals crossed the river on stilts and drop into our friends at Wastebusters for a cuppa and a wee surprise gift.
