A walk in the wilder parts of Midlothian, with a chance of seeing the first Small Skippers that have been recorded in the Lothians ever.
The site is in Gore Glen along the river South Esk and is reached by taking the A7 from Edinburgh to the intersection with the A704. Shortly after this there is a new Persimon housing development called Kirkmill View. Carry on past this and round a new roundabout. Shortly past this, there is a right-hand turn to Gore Glen. Here there is an official car park. Meet here (grid ref. NT335618) at 10.30am.
