Phase 3 updates
The Scottish Government has announced that we have now moved into Phase 3 of Scotland's routemap through and out of the coronavirus crisis.
Here are some key changes that might affect your visit to the Regional Park:
Friday 10 July:
- up to 15 people from up to four different households may now meet outdoors
- young people under 18 can meet as many households as they like in one day
Monday 13 July:
- outdoor youth work can resume
Wednesday 15 July:
- All holiday accommodation can reopen. We assume this includes wild camping. Please note wild camping is not permitted in Edinburgh's parks within one mile of a public road (direct download of PDF - see rule 6.4)
We continue to urge people to access the Regional Park by foot or cycle if possible, to reduce strain on our small car parks.
Please note toilets are closed, and we are unable to reopen them until an adequate cleaning procedure is available. Please go before you go if possible (link leads to direct PDF leaflet download).
