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.
There’s a lot of fun to be had in the great outdoors in winter! Crunching across frosty grass, smelling the crisp cold air, admiring the patterns on fallen leaves, spying sleepy ladybirds tucked under trees’ bark, jumping around in snow, and seeing how far your shadows stretch in the low winter sun... As long as you are well prepared, there’s so much to see and do at this time of year, whether on Bennachie or your local woodland, park, or even your garden.
Jock o' Bennachie has lots to tell you about what’s going on in winter! Check out his outdoor and indoor activities, there’s lots of fun stuff for you to enjoy!
He also has important advice for you on how to enjoy being outdoors in winter safely.
Please don't forget to checkout our Autumn and Summer programme if you have not already had a look.
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!
