On Wednesday 19th July a small group of MIS members took part in a walk to Ray Island from the Stood.
David Nichols,Warden of Ray Island, lead the walk, which was interspersed with information on flora and fauna; details of historical formation on the land used for fortification; evidence of early farming and other fascinating facts.
David was a wonderful guide and had an incredible wealth of local knowledge and we wish to thank him for this walk which was truly memorable.
Everyone really enjoyed this outing; if any member would like to be included in next years walk, please contact Marica Frost (details in Mistral).
