Edinburgh's Walks

Guide

For travellers who wish to ditch the car and immerse themselves in city life, they would be hard pushed to find a more apt destination than Edinburgh. In fact, the labyrinthine Old Town – riddled with narrow thoroughfares and one-way streets – is best explored on foot, not only to avoid the frustration of driving in a city that simply wasn’t designed with cars in mind, but also because this is only way to discover the secretive closes and wynds that join different parts of Edinburgh and conceal hidden treasures that can’t be viewed from the road. Every season offers a different view of the city and, with plenty of walks of varying challenge, visitors are sure to find a stroll suited to their physical ability.
