I like to explore places by walking, but this little slice of Edinburgh was a joy

1 month ago

I hiked this section back in October 2015, while living in Edinburgh. It was a really fun hike. My buddy and I "wild camped" as they call it there just outside of Kinlochleven and about halfway up Ben Nevis. On the recommendation of some other hikers (some RAF guys doing a charity walk), we took the trail that goes around to the north face of Ben Nevis. The trail is roughly a third of the way up the main trail to the summit. We camped the second night near a small loch on the north trail. We tried to go to the top of Ben Nevis the next day but didn't find the trail going up in time and had to hike down to Fort William. The trail overall is pretty easy and flat until Ben Nevis, and the hike up isn't too grueling with a full pack. Highly recommend this trail. Both Kinlochleven and Fort William are nice towns to stay in, and Scots are really nice people.

Edinburgh is a wonderful city with great culture, architecture, new and old vibrant city. The vantage points to be had a views across the city are a must see. No need to follow any route but enjoy your own way.

This straightforward route combines the Royal Mile with the main shopping area of Edinburgh's New Town, which is less picturesque but offers more modern retail space plus access to the city's several museums.

This route in the heart of Old Town Edinburgh takes you from Holyrood Palace up to Edinburgh Castle. In between is the majority of the city's touristy shops. For something unusual, stop inside Scottish Parliament, which is open to the public an free unlike the other attractions.

A little too much urban for me but a nice walk

A walk I use when other family members want to go into town. It lets me and our dog get out and stretch our legs a little. Nice wide paths, paved and very easy. Can be a bit over crowded near the Theme park area but when you get past that it is less travelled.

Great walk. All the buildings are so unique.

I walked the trail in reverse (Fort William to Kinlochleven). Past the Ben Nevis Centre the track begins, climbing up on a gradual ascent along a logging road for about an hour. It is then gently undulates through the mountains with some amazing views along and through the valley. While relatively flat, it can be difficult underfoot in places because of water flowing across large segments of the track. You can pick your way over much of it thanks to the rocky terrain but those who are not reasonably sure of foot may struggle in wet weather.

Visita obligada en la ciudad. Llena de pubs, tiendas de recuerdos y bien comunicada con otras partes de la ciudad.

Nice city walk/hike. If you are not use to hills, like this Florida girl. Beware. The weather was unusually warm for April upper 70s.

Done this walk many times, never tire of it

Mostly level walking. A little climb near end; then a winding drop down to Fort William.

Nice trail partly through homes and partly through woods. One of the bridges was flooded but crossable (water up to the ankles).

great city. alot of history.

Nice way to reach there and view of stirling is awesome
