The route is decided on the day and we'll walk for up to two hours and return to the start point. Weather permitting, we'll take in great views across Edinburgh, the Lothians and beyond.

Treats at the top are always welcome if anyone fancies bringing some to share :) Anything really, we're always grateful.

Hemma-time. Then Hemma Cafe/Bar afterwards for refreshments.

Dogs You're very welcome to bring your dug on this walk, provided you also bring a short lead.

Getting there: It's about a 15-20 minute walk from North Bridge. Also, Lothian bus 35 stops at the foot of the Royal Mile near the Parliament and Palace, round the corner from the start point.

Walkers are responsible for their own safety, and no member or organiser from the group can be held responsible in case of any mishap.

Please update your RSVP if you can't make it (a decent length of time in advance especially if the meetup is full - ideally the day before - to give others a chance to take your spot). Thanks! ------ Hope to see you there :)
