Walking in Edinburgh
One of the main attractions for walking in Edinburgh is the sleeping volcano Arthur’s Seat. It’s impossible to miss this in Edinburgh’s skyline. There are various different routes you can take to walk around Arthur’s Seat and up towards the summit. The views from the top are absolutely stunning.
Cramond Island is a beautiful area of Edinburgh for a stroll and if you plan it carefully, you can walk out to the island when the tide is low and catch the beautiful sunset before returning. Be sure to check the tide timings before you set off to ensure you can get back safely.
Calton Hill is a great place for a walk in Edinburgh. A walk up to the top of the hill offers superb 360 degree views of Edinburgh city, showing it in all its glory. If you choose to visit Calton Hill, you can also go up the Nelson Monument.
