Edinburgh Strollin’

One of the very finest things you can do in Edinburgh is just wander about and take it all the historic buildings and vistas. I took to the ‘Water of Leith‘ last weekend, to see Edinburgh’s New Town from foot.

The Water of Leith is Edinburgh’s hidden natural charm, meandering for 24 miles from its source in the Pentland Hills, through the heart of the city to its outflow into the Firth of Forth at Leith. The river is home to a wide variety of plants and animals from wild garlic and orchids to brown trout, heron, kingfisher and otters. If you don’t fancy the walk, jump on your bike and pedal your way across the Capital.
