Woolly Meadow – a self-guided knitted birds trail

Fun for all the family in Tomintoul!

Come on this gentle self-guided walk and look out for all the woolly waders around the bird hide and on the path through to Tomintoul. Keep an eye open to see if there are any more hiding in any of the local shops.

Submit your creative photos of the knitted birds to the Glenlivet Ranger – can you manage to get a photo of a real bird and a woolly one in the same shot?
