Dette skal vi gjøre

We'll meet up at King's Buildings House on the University of Edinburgh King's Buildings site. From there we will head up Blackford Hill first via the pavements before hitting the grassy slopes near the Royal Observatory. From here we will walk up to the summit of Blackford Hill, which has views over Edinburgh and as far as some of the major mountains of the Scottish Highlands (cloud permitting!)…
