Blackford Hill and the Braid Hills

Edinburgh is a city surrounded by hills and like Arthur’s Seat, Blackford Hill is a short walk to the top but offers a different perspective on the city. This walk will see you admire the vista over towards Arthur’s Seat with the mighty Blackford Hills close by if you fancy exploring further. On a clear day, you can see over to Fife, and other famous sights such as the River Forth with its road and rail bridges spanning its width.

As well as a spectacular view of the city, the Royal Observatory stands on Blackford Hill too, a great place to explore.
