7 Hills of Edinburgh walk, part 1 - for the waiting list of 8th March

Route: Castle Hill esplanade, along to Calton Hill, over to Arthur's Seat, then across Blackford Hill. End at the clock, foot of Morningside Road.

Walk distance: approximately 12.5km/8 miles.

Total ascent: approximately 120m/400 feet.

Expected duration: 3 hours.

Contact number:[masked]-4892.

This walk takes place entirely within the city, but a reasonable level of fitness is necessary, as are waterproof clothing, walking boots, food and water. However, being a city walk, opt-out points are available almost everywhere! At the end of the walk, I'll be going for a drink at the nearby Waiting Room pub. All are welcome to join me.

Please note! this walk is primarily for people on the waiting list for the same walk on March 8th. If you aren't on that list, you are welcome to reply, but please be prepared to be bumped if someone on the list subsequently replies.

No member or organiser from the group can be held responsible for any misadventures you may encounter on this walk. By signing-up for this walk, you are understood to have agreed to these terms.

    I really enjoyed today's walk - nice views, good exercise, decent weather and friendly folk! Thanks for organising, Ian. Sorry for rushing out at the end, but hopefully I'll make it to the pub next time.

    Hi. I have to apologise as I received an email option to attend - but couldn't make it at short notice. As I just found your web page yesterday I am just trying to get to grips with how things work. Sorry. Hopefully I can join in on a walk soon.

    Thank you for giving me a place off the waitlist. While I was waiting Allan put up another walk which I have signed up to so I will withdraw from this one. Thanks again.

    Hi Ian, are dogs welcome on this walk? It doesn't say in the description, and a few recent walks have stated no dogs. So I wanted to double check that it's ok to bring Sammie.

    Ian, as you've probably seen I've had to drop out of this weekends walks due to a trapped nerve etc. Even if it's improved by next wknd, I don't think hills would be a good idea (especially just before my holiday) so I'll drop out now giving plenty of time for one of the waiting list to get my place :-)
