Walked all around Roseburn and the water of Leith to the Galaxy of Modern Art. Not busy apart from the occasional dog walkerwalker and safe as no bikes unlike other areas of Edinburgh. A wee bit muddy in places so decent shoes needed and dependant...More

My husband and I walked several miles along the Water of Leith Walkway. It was so peaceful and beautiful! The huge viaduct that we came across was magnificent. It's very easy to get to without a car and is well worth the time spent.

Yes there is. The walkway ends in Leith (next to a multitude of bars and restaurants) and you can access the city centre at Haymarket or Stockbridge. Both are a short walk into the city and signposted
