Wester Craiglockhart Hill Management Plan 2019-2029

Closes 31 Jul 2019

Opened 3 Jul 2019


Wester Craiglockhart Hill is a prominent feature within Lothian. It provides immense habitat value for a range of different species. It is an important  greenspace for recreational activities and environmental studies where a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) can also be found.

Management of such an area is guided by a site-specific plan. There has been no previous management plan for Wester Craiglockhart Hill and a new Local Nature Reserve designation is shortly being put in place by the City of Edinburgh Council. A plan for the period 2019-2029 has now been drafted and we would welcome your comments on it.
