PUBLIC MEETING. The Radical Road in Edinburgh’s Holyrood Park has been a much-loved walking route since 1822. In 2018, Historic Environment Scotland closed the route due to fears of rockfall. This public event will explore the history and use of the Radical Road, and its importance to local people and visitors, walkers, geologists, climbers and historians.

There will be short talks on the geology and history of the Radical Road, its use as a walking route and by climbers and wider issues of access. The meeting will be an opportunity to find out about Historic Environment Scotland’s Strategic Plan for Holyrood Park and discuss engaging with this plan, and further action that can be taken to persuade Historic Environment Scotland to reopen the Radical Road.

This free public meeting will be chaired by Rob Edwards, journalist and broadcaster, and is organised by the Edinburgh Geological Society, Ramblers Scotland, The Cockburn Association, Mountaineering Scotland and ScotWays. Historic Environment Scotland has been invited to attend.

Free, please book in advance.
