These are short, informal day walks exploring the rocks of central Scotland. The programme includes many of the best geological sites in the Lothians and Fife, places where you can get to grips with the fascinating stories that the rocks tell about our past. The pace is slow, with plenty of opportunities to enjoy the rocks, the landscape and wildlife. Please check the links below to find out more, and don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions. Look forward to seeing you on a walk soon!
