Not sure if I followed the trail exactly but still really enjoyed it, easy path and great for dogs as there’s a river with a little pool they can play in. Done before and would do again

This would've been a great walk with some tough terrain and a lot of mud but half way along the path is closed due to a landslide so is no longer accessible which was disappointing.

Very peaceful walk with great path way and many routes to choose, plenty of parking and play area for children at the entrance

This was my one on my favourite hikes while in Scotland last year. Very windy, but the light house was so interesting i had to see it. Great steep staircase down.

RunningGreat!No shade

Used this trail for jogging when I studied in UStA. It goes from the golf museum to the pier but you may go further on to west sands. It gives scenic views of the North Sea shortly after you past the castle. Most of the trail is along the Scores that traverses most of the old campus of the university.

Good walk, white bridge is out, so you have to walk the green bridge route (longer route)

A pleasant walk or run. Obvious I know but you will need a good torch for the tunnel and don't forget to stick your head in the room half way. Rumour is a tramp used to live there. The tunnel was also used to store the Royal Train during WW2.

i would highly recommend for everyone who loves trails and beautiful scenery, plenty trails for walking hiking running along the scenic John muir way down the river Avon, from Avonbridge past the William wallace hiding cave, through muiravonside country park, an abundance of stairs and viaducts to climb then linlithgow bridge near the battle of linlithgow bridge

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

I was in heaven as a teenager on my ‘pilgrimage’ to the Home of Golf. I vividly remember exploring this area...around the R & A Clubhouse, the practice putting green and starters box, holes 1 and 18, the Swilcan Burn, and out to the famous ‘Chariots of Fire’ Beach. I really hope to get back...maybe for the British Open in 2022!

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.
