Arthur’s Seat

Midlothian 15th May 2022

Holyrood Park’s dramatic hills and crags give Edinburgh its distinctive skyline. They also provide grassland habitats for a remarkably diverse and interesting flora. We hope to see species such as Ophioglossum vulgatum (Adder’s-tongue), Minuartia verna (Spring Sandwort), Potentilla tabernaemontani (Spring Cinquefoil) amongst many others. Historic Scotland manage the park and we hope that one of their rangers might talk about its conservation management. The emphasis of this field meeting will be on learning and we would particularly welcome anyone who has not been on a BSBI field meeting before.
