Blackford Glen is a site where I pursue many of my hobbies, including fell-running, orienteering, birdwatching, rock climbing and mountain biking and I know the glen in all weathers, all year round and by day and night I am a Chartered Geologist with a Ph. D. and a qualifiedOutdoor Leader. I have helped run geological excursions in the glen for learned societies. I helped to survey the physical geography of the Braid Burn, which runs through the glen, which incorporates the study of the human history of modifications to the stream and the areas adjacent to the channel

Onde você estará

The whole experience is set in Blackford Glen, one of the ancient glacial meltwater channels in the landscape of Edinburgh. The river channel is our constant companion. Hermitage of Braid is a typical 19th century Scottish estate house, constructed from local stone, with outlying walled garden, stables and an ice house. Agassiz's Rock and Blackford Quarry are superb exposures of the rocks that make up the hills on either side of the glen.
