Lothian and Borders GeoConservation have launched their latest leaflet, Around Castle Rock, written by Andrew McMillan and available in printed format and as a free download from this website. Edinburgh Castle Rock developed as part of a volcano hundreds of millions of years before human occupation. Today it provides a spectacular backdrop to the centre of the City of Edinburgh. This booklet describes the geological processes which created the landscape of the city centre and a selection of stone-constructed buildings and monuments which form part of the city’s built heritage.
