Next event: Dragons and Damsels of Moss and Loch: Saturday 26 July
Run by SNH and Woodland Trust. Information here.

Last event: SEPA volunteers work day: Friday 21 February
A number of SEPA volunteers, some who came from as far away as Dingwall, worked on the south side of the path to dig out  feeder drains from the main drains. This will make the dry areas in-between much wetter. Everyone worked hard and they produced 17 drains in a couple of hours!  It will be interesting to see the effect on the water table of this little experiment.

Recent event: Burns Supper: Saturday 25 January
The legendary Burns Supper - and once again the well oiled PCW team did the imortal poet proud. And, as usual, they were especially well-oiled by the end of the evening. The haggis was once again dealt with by Dr Carr. When Bill adresses a haggis, it stays addressed. This time it was videoed, so soon you will be able to watch again without needing to send your clothes to the cleaners. The immortal memory was by Gerda Stevenson - very classy - and the Portmoak Players and Mike and Gerry set the whole thing to music.

Fine views, delightful walking and an ambitious project to restore a commercial plantation to a raised peat bog.

Located at Scotlandwell, near to Kinross and the M90, about midway between the Forth Road Bridge and Perth.
