"I spent seven years in Edinburgh, and a walk along the Water of Leith into the city centre was one of my favourite weekend walks, because I loved how you could walk right through the city without worrying about traffic. And I really loved how it was so green! This Sunday walk will retrace those steps along the Water of Leith walkway as it snakes its way unseen through the Edinburgh suburbs, past Murrayfield Stadium and Dean Village, before leaving the walkway to stroll through the famous Botanic Gardens. From there we’ll follow the route of a historic railway track and tunnel towards the city centre, before making our way to the finish atop Calton Hill, where we can take in one of the finest city views in Europe."
