Edinburgh has a 27 km coastline according to Edinburgh Shoreline who are researching it from South Queensferry to Joppa.

They hope to inspire locals to discover the history as well as the flora and fauna, so inspiring people to think more about the area fronting the Forth and what its future might look like.

At the Botanics there is a major exhibition running until 23 September 2018 at the John Hope Gateway where you can learn a bit more.

Funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and the Green Infrastructure Community Engagement Fund and part of Edinburgh Living Landscape run by the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

The Edinburgh Shoreline mapping team is hosting a drop in event in the Washhouse, Portobello on Tuesday 7 August 2018 between 4pm and 7pm.

This is the second of five events to explore how Edinburgh’s coastal communities engage with their 27 km of shoreline.  The information gathered will be used to inform an alternative map/artwork of the coast.
