Midlothian Ranger Service

We are based at Vogrie House. We manage the countryside for the benefit of people and wildlife at these wonderful sites in Midlothian:

Our objectives

  • Recreation (access)
    To encourage participation in Midlothian's countryside and to work in partnership with communities.
  • Education
    To help everyone learn about Midlothian's countryside and heritage.
  • Conservation (biodiversity)
    To conserve and enhance Midlothian's natural environment and cultural heritage.

Every year we work with:

  • over 2,400 children and adults on curriculum-based environmental education
  • over 2,900 people attending our groups and events
  • more than 11,000 hours of volunteer time on projects and events.
