Great walk for some urban exploring. Stunning 360 degree views of Edinburgh and beyond. Perfect if you have an hour or so free for a walk, jog, run that incorporates a bit of nature too.

Amazing! Depending on weather that day/day before, path could be very muddy and slick. VERY windy at top the day I did it but definitely part of the experience.

30 min by car from Edinburgh center. Wonderful trail! Three mountains about 500 m high, step climp. On the last kilometers the trail is damaged, but u get around it.

A well trafficked trail with some elevation but still not terribly difficult on a nice day. Even on the calmest day it’s very windy at the top.

Excellent short hike! A Grand view on a nice day. Lots of well behaved dogs. A must do when in Edinburgh.

This was an awesome respite from the Royal Mile, though sometimes as crowded.

Awesome!!!! Can’t beat the views. Good climb.

great view and well worth the climb.
easy to do in less than 2 hours even with stopping for a short rest along the way.

Amazing hike! I'm not an experienced, nor frequent, hiker so this was quite intense. If you do take this on I would recommend a good pair of hiking shoes and a rain jacket! The wind is also pretty crazy at the top, but the views of the city are completely worth it.

Great as part of a longer walk around the capital. I walked up and ran down. Quite foggy at the top!
