This was a great walk

It was really fun! My husband and I walked the first bit then ran the way back as it was mostly downhill. Took the stroll late evening so the lighting and temperature was just perfect. Lots of bugs though, yuck!

Easy climb and nice views of tayside and fife.

Nice walk if you are looking for a short walk. Paths quite narrow and have been created by people just walking the trail. Can imagine the path can be quite slippy when it is poor weather

Lovely wee walk dog friendly. A steep walk to the top where the waterfall is but worth it.

Wow, my husband and I literally could not believe a trail like this is available for everyone to enjoy. Quite the magical place and easy route makes it extremely enjoyable.

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.

My local park is a relaxing way to spend an hour walking around. The flowers, are not only beautiful but smell lovely on a dry summery day. Its also home to the award winning rose garden which is updated and well kept. The open fields have plenty of space for a dog to run. The baseball field at the top is also a good place for a game of rounders.

I enjoyed it lots good views

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

A great walk to the West of Edinburgh bordering the zoo with fabulous views to the City and The Castle etc and all corners of The Lothians.

I visited the Home of Golf as a teenager. I remember it like it was yesterday (even though it definitely was not). I loved seeing the many historic sites. I walked a portion of the Old Course...from the R & A Clubhouse, past the famous home hole, the Swilcan Burn and Bridge, the incredible Road Hole, and past a couple of the unique double greens, before looping back. I would love to return for the 150th British Open in 2022, as well as to finally get a chance to play the course!

Considering the size of the park it does have a lot to offer. There are three wildlife ponds where you can see ducks and swans. I have also personally spotted many grey squirrels, rabbits and mice. On the right day you may also see bees and butterflies. There is a synthetic football pitch, three bowling greens and a large disc golf course. I've also spotted what I believe to be a basket ball court of some description although I'm not 100% certain. There are public toilets open from May to September at the bowling pavilion. There are benches throughout the park and paving and ramps making it suitable for wheelchairs and strollers. There is also a play-park for children, can't say I've used it myself because I'm a good decade or two too old but the kids that are young enough seem to enjoy it. I would give it a strong 4/5 given how strongly it exceeded my expectations.

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!

Nice run with great views

Nice for a run or walk. Fairly flat. Dry paths. Large majority covered by trees. Very enjoyable on a nice day.

Lovely walk from the carpark. Get steep towards the top but it doesn't take too long.

Hiked this March 16, 2020. Easy hike. We spent 20 minutes at the top and saw only 2 other groups hiking it. Took us about 90 minutes round trip with a few short stops on the way up. Beautiful view at the top. It had rained all day and night before we went but we got there around 11 am and there were maybe two muddy spots but we easily got around then. Great experience. Wish COVID wouldn’t have shut down our trip a day later.
