Alchemilla weekend, Glenshee ski centre

East Perthshire 20th – 21st July 2024
led by
Mark Lynes

This two-day meeting will be a great opportunity to get familiar with a number of Alchemilla (Lady’s-mantle) species which will hopefully include A. glomerulans, A. wichurae and the recently described A. sciura, along with various flavours of A. filicaulis and some other more widespread taxa. Day 1 will focus on various sites either side of the road down from the ski centre at Glenshee. Subject to the necessary permissions from the landowner, day 2 will be spent on the Fealar estate where we know there are good populations of extremely typical A. wichurae. The meeting will involve some walking over rough terrain. There will also be an opportunity to get specimens identified (ideally over tea and cake in the ski centre café). Places are limited and booking is essential. Participants will need to arrange their own accommodation.
