The Field


The Field is on the slopes of Arthur's Seat just above Duddingston Village. Work by local people and volunteers from further afield has resulted in the creation of a diverse habitat to include woodland planting, managed grassland, and planted orchards and apple tree nursery. The Field provides a rich bio-diverse link and public pathway between Holyrood Park, Meadowfield Woods and Duddingston Village Community Land. More and more local people, tourists and Edinburgh residents regularly use the Field for access, recreation (running,walking, picnics, visits with young children), volunteering (on both The Filed and the adjoining Community Land and Vegetable Garden) and socialising. Families (including dogs!) are welcome but keep your dog leashed near the hens if it is likely to chase them. Volunteers are welcome at our regular workdays which take place on the second Saturday of the month.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
