03nov10:00 am12:30 pmLichen discovery walk - Cramond


Event Details

Join the Edinburgh Shoreline Project and staff from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh for an exploration of lichens along the seashore.

We’ll be walking from Cramond Promenade across to Cramond Island at low tide to discover more about the lichens that can be found in this coastal habitat. We will provide you with a hand lens so that you can see the lichens in exquisite detail, and a lichen guide – though our team will be on hand to hep you identify lichens too.

Booking is essential. To book your free place please visit:

Please be aware that a considerable amount of walking is involved (it is 0.7 miles from Cramond Promenade to Cramond Island) so please wear suitable shoes and dress for the weather. Please bring a drink with you, and a snack if you need it.

We will meet at the beginning of the causeway out to Cramond Island (next to the tide times board) at 10 am, and anticipate this walk will last until around 12 or 12.30pm.
