Dead Ducks in Leith

There are many things which can kill ducks; foxes, dogs, air rifles, disease, pollution to name but a few, but the report of a number of dead ducks outside the Malmaison Hotel in Leith is very unusual for the Water of Leith. If you live in the area be vigilant and if you see more please report them to DEFRA 08459335577. Follow this link to The Scotsman newspaper for more information.


Pirates Wanted!!

We are planning a Pirate Themed Treasure Hunt for Sunday 6th September around the Dells starting at the Water of Leith Visitor Centre. More details of how to join the event will follow soon, but at the moment we are seeking volunteers who would be happy to dress as a pirate and undertake activities for the afternoon. The hunt will be based on Robert Louis Stevenson's story Treasure Island, so we need lots of fun characters and nautical paraphernalia. Perhaps you have a secret yearning to be a pirate or have a costume you could lend us, we are even looking for a small boat!! email if you can help.
