Available Maps

This area is a public park managed by the City of Edinburgh Council, with a visitor centre. Cammo was at one time a country estate, and the ruined stables can still be seen, as well as the remains of the big house and walled garden. In the south of the map, there is an old water tower by a small hill. The area includes open grassy fields, extensive mature woodland and farmland which is sometimes ploughed. There are some water features – a long artificial lake and streams, and the area is rich in wildlife.
