Course: The Seven Hills of Edinburgh

28 September @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

- £139

Edinburgh’s landscape is dominated by the Seven Hills, each with a hard core of igneous rock that has been altered and eroded over millions of years by natural forces and more recently by human activity. We will visit each of the hills to explore what they tell us about the past, and how they contribute to today’s city.

The field trips in this course involve walking for approximately 6km at each field site over uneven terrain which will include some steep inclines.

Wednesdays from 28th September 2022 10:30am – 12:30pm • (9 classes)
Online / On location • Tutor: Angus D Miller BSc PhD
