I attended the Highland Fling event hosted by the Friends of MacRosty Park in August.

The event is a family fun day with traditional music and dance, celebrating local produce and businesses. While also having some fundraising elements to help Friends of MacRosty Park to head towards the goal for their all ability play equipment!

I went along to show just the amount of different wildlife that can be found in the Lade. It was swimming with creatures from shrimps to newts! This was to show why the lade is important in the park and why it is managed the way that it is. The day was a great success,  engaging with 40 -50 young people and a very tired Ranger by the end!
