Beautiful walk... The Three Mariners was a welcome site at the end...

Great walk, awesome views and lake at the summit!

This is a relatively easy and pleasant walk that includes open views and short wooded areas. The pathway is predominately tarmac although you can choose to walk on short grass at many parts. It is used for walking, running and cycling. Most users are spatially aware and considerate but it can be busy on dry weekends.
You can choose a variety of alternative paths, mostly woodland, that increases the rise and fall and difficulty level.


Pretty little Village. Walk starts off opposite a pub with stream and wide open space, follows along into woodland trail.

did our own path, so many trails and places to explore. very beautiful. need to go early before 9 am, crowds start gathering after 10.

Hiked this as a “spur of the moment” thing when we visited the Scotland monument. Beautiful little walk.

Pretty, various surfaces, no hills!

Amazing views! Took my 11 year old daughter up and we both took 1000 photos of Edinburgh! :) Do not skip this hike on a visit to Edinburgh! Second time here and stuck to the castle and art galleries and shopping last time. This hike honestly really made Edinburgh sing to me on a level waaay beyond the castle and sites. Do it!

Great hiking with the kids

Nice forest walk
Had a stop at the station cafe due to rain
On our way back finding the way was not easy

Hard going if you're not used to hiking in parts.

absolutely amazing walk.

Amazing views from the top. Can’t believe this trail is almost on our door step. Will definitely be making the short trip to do it again.

Very pretty and great English Heritage visit of the Castle, plenty of birds to observe if you have binoculars as well

Suggested by a local to climb clockwise vs the steps. The advise was great. More enjoyable to climb rocks vs. the hundreds of steps.

Great trail and quite flat except in 2-3 places. not sure of it was because of the time of the year, but we had to go through an area of grassland full of sheep and sheep poo!

Fun and easy

Good brisk walk! Take walking poles with you and a drink and some food - also be careful of low cloud cover when you are at the summit - I picked the wrong track down and had to traverse quite a bit to get back to the right track. Can be steep and slippery. Views are stunning when the cloud clears.

Nice easy walk. Took me half an hour to get to the top, not a major incline. Nice views but very crowded at the top.
