Best Walking Routes near Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a great city to discover on foot, with walking tours exploring its fascinating history, culture and art, and some of Scotland’s finest mountains right on the doorstep.

Scotland’s capital city is a great place to stroll, with its cobbled streets, fashionable walkways and ancient alleys offering hundreds of walking routes for visitors.

Holyrood Park and the craggy cliffs of Arthur’s Seat are perfect for anyone wanting to discover the great outdoors in the middle of the city; while Princes Street Gardens, The Meadows and Inverleith Park are all great places to unwind and relax.

To the south of the city are the beautiful Pentland Hills with over 100km of signposted paths, and to the north are the mighty peaks of the Scottish Highlands and the Cairngorms National Park. Here you’ll find challenging mountain hikes, secluded lochs, silent glens, diverse and spectacular wildlife, and plenty of fierce weather!
