Holyrood Park: Hot Rocks

2 October @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

First in a series of two walks. Join an expert geologist and a Ranger on a longer guided walk to discover the fascinating geological history of Holyrood Park. Discover fossilised lagoons, walk on lava and find out more about Edinburgh’s own James Hutton (the father of modern geology).

Stay safe: This event includes a strenuous grade walk. The route contains rough tracks, uneven and boggy terrain, steep inclines and declines. Local roads and car parks may be subject to closures.

This event will be free but booking online in advance is required. To book, and for more information please contact the Ranger Service on 0131 652 8150 or rangers@hes.scot

The walk is suitable for ages 12+.
