TALE ON THE TRAIL
A new trail has been created to help families explore the heritage of a Highland wood. The Carnegie Story Trail at Ledmore & Migdale Woods near Spinningdale in East Sutherland runs along a 1.5 mile route, from Torroy Croft to the shore of Loch Migdale, and celebrates the connection between the wood and the philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, who once owned it as part of Skibo Estate. Seven geocaches have been placed along the trail, each one containing part of a short story written by Theresa Breslin, which entice visitors to explore further by hunting for the next chapter. The story features illustrations by artist Kate Leiper.
