SUB GROUP - INVERNESS YOUNG WALKERS (IYW)
Join us as we visit the site of the ancient fort of Craig Phadrig which offers great views over Inverness, the Beauly Firth and Ben Wyvis in the distance. We shall meet at Craig Phadrig car park and make our way around the circuit.
The circuit is marked by woodland paths and can be steep in some places but is generally quite easy going. Expect muddy parts if there has been rain up to 48 hours prior to the walk.
