Outdoors With The Bailies
The Bailies of Bennachie want to help inspire young people to enjoy and appreciate the outdoor environment.
There is so much out there to explore and enjoy, and Bennachie's friendly giant, Jock o' Bennachie will help guide you as we look at the incredible biodiversity, history and landscape of the Aberdeenshire area.
Jock o' Bennachie and the Bailies have started with some fun summer activities and are developing further educational packages for schools to use. Using Bennachie as inspiration, we hope you enjoy and have fun with all these resources.
Summer Holiday Programme
Jock o' Bennachie has come up with some fun nature activities for you to try over the summer holidays.
He will be bringing you three sets of fun activities, each with a competition for which there will be a small prize to the lucky winner!
Even if you cannot come to visit Bennachie, these resources (which are aimed at Primary School children) have been designed to be relevant to your local woodland, green space, park, or even garden.
As you use these resources, we hope you will share with us photos or videos of your adventures, your findings, the pictures you draw or paint and the things you create - we can't wait to see them! We hope you will enter our competitions, we are offering a small prize for each competition - very best of luck!
