IF YOU go down to the woods to­day, you’re sure of a big sur­prise but there are no bears at Glen­coe, just the chance to un­cover se­cret trea­sure. Join Na­tional Trust for Scot­land Rangers every Wed­nes­day in Au­gust from 10.30am on a fam­ily trea­sure ad­ven­ture to ex­plore Glen­coe’s wood­land trails and dis­cover hid­den trea­sure.

Young trea­sure hunters will crack clues as they fol­low the trail, learn­ing use­ful nav­i­ga­tion skills and com­plet­ing chal­lenges along the way. From tree rub­bings to pond dip­ping, build­ing dens to iden­ti­fy­ing flora and fauna, it’s a fan­tas­tic, fun chance for young peo­ple to get out and con­nect with the nat­u­ral world.

The ad­ven­ture costs £8 per child and ac­com­pa­ny­ing adults go free. Book­ing is es­sen­tial. Re­serve your space now to en­sure you don’t miss out.
