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.
