All are welcome to the spring public walk around Dullatur Marsh Wildlife Reserve, starting at 10.30am on Saturday, May 31, at the junction of Glen Road and Victoria Terrace by the rail bridge, Dullatur.

The reserve is open to the public at all times but is little visited as it is well off the beaten track.

This is the opportunity to see the reserve with SWT volunteer convener Paul Carter. There should be loads of marshland wildflowers and birds, plus much other wildlife.

The walk will also take in the Forth and Clyde Canal, Hirst Glen and Antonine Wall. Distance is around 7km (nearly 5 miles) with 60m (200ft) of ascent.

Some tracks at start and finish, but mainly rough walking, possibly wet and boggy in places so please go suitably equipped and able.

Three hours is normally sufficient for the walk, longer if a great deal of wildlife is found and watched. No dogs please.
