Access rights don't extend to:

Corstorphine Hill is a designated Nature Reserve and a Regionally Important Geological and Geomorphologic Site.

We hope you will enjoy the hill and the panoramic views, make full use of the paths and green spaces, look out for wild life - there are foxes, badgers, grey squirrels and many other rodents - over eighty species of bird visit the hill in the course of year with forty species being resident at any one time.

We also would ask you to leave the hill as you found it for others to enjoy as you have done. Please do not light fires, dig up and remove plants, undertake any act which disturbs wildlife, ride bicycles in a fashion which would cause erosion or prevents other user of the hill from enjoying the amenity, nor build any form of structure.

Likewise please pick up your dog's poo and take away the bag; remove any food wrappings or bottles you may have brought.

There are litter bins at most entrances to the hill and where there are none we would ask you to take any litter to the nearest one or back home.
