The Cammo Estate is an 85-acre public park. It's a quiet spot with meadows, dykes, and mature, open woodland, situated in the Barnton area on the North West edge of Edinburgh. Forming part of the city green belt, it is bounded by the River Almond, Turnhouse Golf Course and residential suburbs.
Friends of Cammo undertakes activities on the Cammo Estate, including tree planting, litter pick-ups and creating wildflower meadows. It opens the visitor centre at Cammo Lodge on Sunday afternoons.
The Visitor Centre and W.C. are open on:
- Sundays from 2pm - 4pm
- Thursdays from 10am - 4pm
Committee and how it works...
Six people (Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Environmental Projects, Membership and Newsletter, Events) meet quarterly, one month before quarterly general meetings. This group can take decisions, but we mostly report to general meetings. We also have subcommittees (comprising committee members and others) for more detailed planning and oversight of events and environmental projects.
Future projects include more interpretation panels, introduction of bee hives and more hedgerow planting. We will also continue to liaise with the Natural Heritage Service, including prioritising activities in the management plan and other desired improvements.
