  • Involve users of the hill and local people in planning, decision-making and aspects of management affecting the hill

  • Raise funds and receive contributions as necessary to finance the work associated with the above

About us


The group started in 2012. We are still quite a small group with limited funds and resources, but we aim to make small, gradual improvements to the hill, working with local people who use the hill and with the City of Edinburgh Council.
