Short Course: the Seven Hills of Edinburgh

5 August 2021 - 6 August 2021

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 Blackford Hill, Braid Hills and Holyrood Park to explore what they tell us about the past, and how they contribute to today’s city.

Tutor: Angus D Miller BSc PhD

Day 1: Blackford Hill Braids: starting and finishing at Hermitage of Braid
Day 2: Arthur’s Seat & Salisbury Crags
