Carie Woods, Rannoch

Sunday 7th May 2017 from 6.30am till 6.30pm

A one-day event to celebrate Rannoch’s Outdoor Space




Lots to do at the Dawn to Dusk Basecamp


Don’t want to walk far? There’s still plenty to do around the Dawn to Dusk Basecamp.


Camp Kitchen

The kettle will be on all day for warm cups of tea or coffee with hot chocolate for the children. We’ll have a hot soup lunch, cakes and snacks during the afternoon and a BBQ at the end of the afternoon. Relax in one of the tents or in the sunshine (we’re hopeful) and simply chat to friends and neighbours.


Kids Kraft Korner

We will have a tent full of woodland themed craft activities for young children and those young at heart.


Bugs & Beasties, come and see what we found!

Bid Strachan of Perth & Kinross Countryside Trust will be helping the young at heart to hunt for bugs and beasties around the small burns at the Dawn to Dusk Basecamp as well as encouraging some woodland den building. A tiny stream but what shows up with a bit of dabbling? What dropped from the trees? Did anything fall into our insect trap?


Self-Guided Trail

Want to walk on your own with your children and follow our Woodland Trail activity sheet? Pick one up from the Kraft Korner Tent or Bugs & Beasties Gazebo. If you borrow a clipboard or crayons for woodland rubbings don’t forget to bring them back for someone else to use.


Rannoch’s Living Woodland Library

“Living Woodland Library” books will be available at the Dawn to Dusk Festival. Just like real books, you can choose from a range of titles and take out a book. Our books however are real people and instead of reading you have a real conversation with them. Rather than scrolling through the pages looking for the info you need you can get straight to the point and just ask!


Meet some of our Living Woodland Library books. Read their stories and find the right book for you.


Woodland Poetry Performance

Creating a magical and mysterious atmosphere, Petra Vergunst, who is a poet and community artist, will perform her poem ‘Embrace’ as she walks through the woods. Why not join her?
