A walk from Vogrie Country Park with a geologist from Edinburgh University shows that Midlothian was once the scene of lime production. The old quarries tell a tale of warm tropical seas from millions of years ago, as well as much more recent human efforts to improve soils for agriculture. There will be two walks in the day as part of Wild Science - one starting at 12:30 and the second at 14:30.
Geocache is the techno way to treasure hunt with GPS or phone in hand. There are over 2212 caches around Dalkeith alone and millions around all over the world. Come along and see how it happens, find the cache of the day and head off into the sunset to find caches. Drop-in on Sunday 7th from 1pm-4pm.
