A walk in the woods is a great way to inspire your nature writing. This circular walk involves a gentle stroll and nature writing workshop in beautiful Roseisle Forest, Burghead.

The natural world is an endless source of inspiration for wildlife writer and photographer Rebecca Gibson. Join her as she walks around Roseisle Forest, starting and finishing in beautiful Burghead.

This three-hour event will involve a leisurely stroll through the woods, keeping an eye out for any passing wildlife. You will be encouraged to notice not just the sights but also the sounds, textures and smells of your surroundings. Nature writing is most immersive when it involves all the senses.

During the walk there will be a nature writing workshop, using creaking pines, chirruping goldcrests and prickly gorse as sensory prompts. You will have the chance to read out what you’ve written if you’d like to, but there’s absolutely no pressure to share. Afterwards, we will make our way back through the forest, hopefully feeling refreshed and inspired.

There is a small gravel car park at the meeting place but this can fill up depending on the day. There is an additional parking space in front of the caravan park, about a five-minute walk away. To access this, continue straight down the B9013 then turn left onto Bridge Street, following it down to the end. As this is a circular walk, the event will finish at the start point.
