Caithness Critters Caithness Young Archaeology Club  
Cycle thro' time at Camster
The first joint meeting of Caithness Critters and Young Archaeology Club took place on Saturday 27th May when the youngsters "Cycled Thro' Time" along the Camster Cycle trail.

At Camster

The Neolithic Camster Cairns were explored in detail before the keen kids cycled 8km along the forest track at Camster completing a time line.

Marina Swanson, Highland Council's Caithness East Ranger, said: "There were certainly four seasons in one day, with a heavy drenching followed by a bitter hail shower. This didn't dampen the children's spirits as they raced to the end and enjoyed many of the muddy pools on the way."

Caithness Critters is organised by The Highland Council's Planning and Development Service Countryside Rangers and supported by Scottish Natural Heritage.
