Cosa farete

I’ll take you on a guided hill run on the Southside of Edinburgh. We will meet at The Clock at Morningside Station. I offer two alternative runs which take the same length of time of 1.5 hours. The hillier (Run 1) takes in two hills, composed of old volcanic lava which formed about 400million years ago! The distance is about 9km in length and the height gain is about 210 metres. Run 2 is more of a trail run, 6km long height gain 116 metres and takes in one of the volcanic hills only. On this run, we will go round a local pond where there are always plenty of water birds to photo. On both runs you will get stunning views back to Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat, the Pentland Hills and great views North - weather permitting. There will be plenty of time to stop and take photos and I’ll point out local wildlife if you are interested. I’m very good on bird song, so even if we don’t see the birds as we run, I will let you know what we are hearing. If you just want to run and take in the views that is fine too! Run 1 and 2 both go through a local nature reserve, The Hermitage, which is wooded and has a stream originating in the Pentland Hills. Run 1 and 2 both go up Blackford Hill. Only Run 1 takes in the Braid Hills. From here, the views to the Pentland Hills are superp. Run 2 goes through The Hermitage valley, by the stream, which is delightful. Both finish back at The Clock.

Ulteriori informazioni su Maggie

Maggie

I am an ecologist and hill runner. I have been running the local hills on the Southside of Edinburgh for 15 years. I was Scottish women’s champion in 2005 ( vet). After gaining a first class degree and PhD from Edinburgh University in Ecology. I worked as a wildlife consultant and then as Head of Policy for Scottish Wildlife Trust for nine years. I have good knowledge of Scotland’s wildlife and the local wildlife of Edinburgh. I do off road running (trail running) in all weather and can adjust the run to suit the conditions especially if there are high winds. I am particularly good on birds and can recognise most from their song or call. When I’m out running, I am always looking out for wildlife and have seen stoats, voles, kestrels, foxes, dippers, butterflies, bees, roe deer and even highland cows - which graze the Pentland Hills.

Dove ti troverai

Both runs go through The Hermitage which is a wooded local nature reserve with a stream in the valley. In the spring there are lots of birds singing. Blackford Hill and Braid Hill are part of Edinburgh’s 7 hills, formed from volcanos from about 400 million years ago. The views of Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat and the whole of Edinburgh can be seen from both tops. On a clear day you can see Berwick Law and the Ochil Hills to the north

Cosa portare

You will need trail running shoes with a good grip - it can be very muddy in places after rain

Altri consigli

It is best if you have some experience of trail running, and have trail shoes with grips as some parts may be muddy. If you are used to hill running I would recommend Run 1. But I can adapt either run on route if you or the small group want to cut out some of the up hills or do more!
