Rocks in Roslin Glen: a record of a swampy past

18 September @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

- Free

Midlothian was once a tropical swamp – and the evidence is in the rocks. A walk in Roslin Glen with Mark Wilkinson, a geologist from the University of Edinburgh will reveal all. Suitable for adults and older children, the walk will cover a couple of kilometres, walking on good paths.

Meet at the main car park for Roslin Glen Country Park: https://www.midlothian.gov.uk/directory_record/171/roslin_glen_country_park

Free, booking not required.
