A cultivated space for meeting, looking and learning.
Outdoor Learning Hub at QMU
The Outdoor Learning Hub is for everyone to enjoy, including our students, visitors, the communities we serve, and educators across Scotland.
We invite you think about the gifts outdoor places like this offer, for activity, learning and well-being.
Imagine how you might learn, play, make, or be in places like this where you live, work, lead or relax.
The Discovery Trail provides an accessible route through our meadow, pond, woods, hedgerows, and Wee Forest. In the Wee Forest you will find the Howff, a sheltered place for meeting, activities, learning and performance.
Wooden waymarkers show the way along the route as per this map (LEAVE THIS NOTE TO ADD A LINK TO THE MAP). On each one there is a QR code connecting to online videos and information.
The stops on the route are set out below.
A grassland re-planted with meadow flowers.
A young forest planted in 2022
An accessible place to grow fruit and vegetables.
The sea starts here - a pond connected to the River Esk.
If we care for a hedgerow we provide a home to a huge range of plants, trees, birds and mammals
Come through the wee gate and explore our woodland site.
