The mysterious world of the bat will come into focus on two occasions at the National Trust for Scotland’s Haddo House later this month.

There will be opportunity for visitors to learn about Haddo’s bat population on Friday, August 21, for adults and again on August 28 for children and families.

Toni Watt, North East Ranger, said: “Haddo is home to a big bat roost, so with a bit of luck, people should get great views of bats as they leave their roost in search of food.

“They can also have a play with a bat detector and start to learn a bit more about this fascinating mammal.”

Tickets for the walk on August 20 cost £5 for adults and £4 for older children.

The event runs from 7.45-9.15pm and pre-booking is essential.

Tickets for the children’s event are £1 for adults and £5 for youngsters and the event runs from 7.15pm- 8.45pm.

This walk is aimed at children aged seven years and over and their families, and again pre-booking is important.
