This is a long thin area in the west of the city, bordering the Zoo. It’s a Local Nature Reserve, managed by the City of Edinburgh Council, and is mostly wooded, with some steep slopes to the east, and open grassy areas on the western side. There are lots of rock features throughout the area. The southern extension to the map is less rocky, a mixture of open and wooded terrain. There’s a good path network throughout.
There is a permanent orienteering course here, and also MapRun courses.
Used mainly for local events (e.g. Saturday events) or training.
