“Beautiful walk in a beautiful city!”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

We found this walk by accident by taking a wrong turn heading for the castle and despite it being a cold February day we were really glad we did! It is an absolutely lovely walk along the river, can't wait to go back and head the other way and go all the way to Leith.

““Nice walk but..."”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

I started the walk in Edinburgh at Bells Brae and went all the way to..Leith Walk! Its a very nice walk. Even if the path is a times run down, this comes with a certain charm. It leads to some beautiful attractions (the Royal Botanic Gardens), and provides great views. The biggest problem we had was finding our way and we eventually found how to get on it by asking but eventually got lost where the path led to a bridge and we could find no signs and no one could tell us where to get back on. That said the part we did do was excellent and we even came across a great outdoor Sunday market.

“Peaceful Nature in Centre of Town”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

I started the walk in Leith and went all the way to the Museum of Modern Arts. Its a very nice walk in Fall. Even if the path is a times run down, this comes with a certain charm. It leads to some beautiful attractions (the Royal Botanic Gardens), and provides great views. As previously said, it could do with a little bit of a clean up.

“Nice walk but needs a bit more care and attention”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 via mobile

We walked part of this walk from Ocean terminal to st marks park. Whilst parts of it are very beautiful and peaceful, it is spoilt by an abundance of litter, graffiti and dog mess in other areas. The path is obviously a favourite route with dog walkers and they need to take responsibility for cleaning up after their dog!
