This walk is free but ticketed.

Hayley Wolcott is a marine biologist and printmaker living on the Isle of Skye. Her lino prints are inspired by her keen interest in the natural world, often highlighting the flora, fauna, and geology of her surroundings.

Having grown up in New England, she has a strong connection with the Atlantic Coast and its numerous organisms. She hopes her work can encourage others to explore the outdoors and to investigate the biological and physical elements that make up their surroundings.

Her previous research has focused on climate science, animal behaviour, endangered wildlife populations, fisheries research, and aquaculture, having worked with numerous research groups across several countries.

She also works with CLIMAVORE CIC supporting their research of closed loop intertidal polyculture site.

This walk involves a stepped path down to the shore, and uneven ground. Please wear warm clothing and suitable footwear.

Meet at the red post box on the roadside. Please note, parking is extremely limited, space for parking can be found at the Gedintailor junction – about 10 minutes walk from the beach.
