GLENFINNAN VIADUCT TRAIL
Perhaps you only stopped for a quick snap of the majestic viaduct, or to appease the kids by taking them to see the railway bridge from the Harry Potter films, but if the weather is in your favour and you’ve got the right footwear, why not stay a while and take in the fresh air on a 1 to 2 hour walk?
The Glenfinnan Viaduct Trail is 2.5 miles (4 km) in length and offers sweet rewards, such as views of Loch Shiel and a visit to the poignant Glenfinnan Monument too, which is a tribute to Jacobite clansmen and was erected in 1815.
Situated within Holyrood Park, this extinct volcano stands tall above the city of Edinburgh. There are a number of routes to the top, making for an easy, pleasant 3 mile (4.75km) hill walk with a bit of a rocky scramble to the summit, which is well worth it for the views of the city.
Edinburgh is a rather hilly city, and Arthur’s Seat is just one of its seven iconic hills – the others are Calton Hill, Castle Hill, Corstorphine Hill, Craiglockhart Hill, Blackford Hill and the Braid Hills – and they all take well under two hours to complete. So put some comfy shoes on and get walking in Edinburgh.
