Orchid Field Trip To Mugdock Country Park

July 6 @ 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Join us for a leisurely stroll around Mugdock Country Park as we seek out native orchids under the guidance of our expert David Menzies. This is a very informal walk and you should be prepared for inclement weather, after all this is the West of Scotland.

Orchids seen on our previous field trips include:

Epipactis helleborine – Common Helleborine
Orchis mascula – Early Purple Orchid
Neottia ovata – Common Twayblade
Neottia cordata – Lesser Twayblade
Dactylorhiza fuchsii – Common Spotted Orchid
Dactylorhiza maculata – Heath Spotted Orchid
Platanthera chlorantha – Great Butterfly Orchid
Gymnadenua borealis – Heath Fragrant Orchid
Dactylorhiza viridis – Frog Orchid

This walk is open to members of the public, but please register your interest atĀ info@scottishorchid.org beforehand.

Meet in the car park at 10:00am onwards for a 10:30am start.
