A two-day festival showcasing the stunning coastal scenery and diverse wildlife of the Energetica corridor has launched for a second year.

After last year’s success, organisers have planned even more events for this year’s Energetica Walking & Wildlife Festival, on Saturday 24 and Sunday, May 25.

The outdoor festival gives residents and visitors the chance to take part in a wide range of fun activities including guided walks, dolphin watching, pond dipping, puffin spotting and wildlife photography lessons.

Most events are free and all are led by experts.

The family-friendly festival offers a fantastic opportunity to get outdoors and experience the natural beauty and diversity that makes the Energetica corridor so special.

Energetica is a 30-mile haven for wildlife and stunning coastal scenery stretching from the Bridge of Don in Aberdeen, north to Peterhead and west to the airport.

The programme aims to cement the area as Scotland’s energy corridor, thriving in a natural environment.

Participants can choose from 20 events over the two days, covering a wide range of activities from walks exploring the stunning north-east coastline, puffin spotting at Bullers of Buchan and dolphin watching at Torry Battery.
