antastic place to retreat to in the middle of town. Spectacular panoramic views. Amazing place to watch the sunsets and Edinburgh’s many fireworks displays. When the sky is clear you can see for miles in every direction. dien dan seo and thao luan seo
It’s a great place to visit. Probably the best location to visit in the entire city

we had a fantastic time walking with the kids up here, the view was spectacular and can really take ur breath away. The swans are so tame that they come right upto u looking for some food, and made us really smile to be so close to thes beautiful birds. anthonys chapel was really stunning to look at making us very mindful of passed history. the building was so interesting to look and read about. suggest taking a jacket as it does get cold the higher u climb. suitable footwear is also advised. Again taking a picnic is a great idea. doesn't cost anything but plz pick up ur rubbish on ur journey, as this would just ruin the look of the splendid place.

es war wunderschön daran sieht man wie viele wunderschöne Orte uns die Welt bietet mit grossartigen Aussichten manchmal vergisst man das im Alltag vor allem in Grossstädten wie Frankfurt

I see most of the reviews are for walking / climbing and picnicking on a sunny day but most of my experiences have been at night or more recently, sledging. I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun that my face hurt from laughing and smiling. Being tossed about on a sledge in the snow was brilliant fun and a good work-out to boot. I recommend taking a hip flask of whisky with you to keep the cockles warm.
Its also a great spot to watch the fireworks during the festival on a warm night with a picnic.
One last thing, my Gran swears she saw little men dance around a fire in Hunter’s Bog (the valley in the middle) in 1944 and Ive been up at night looking for them but never found them. Coincidentally, small coffins were found buried in the same area by some school children with lifelike dolls inside them. No one knows who put them there or why but you can view them at the National Museum on Chambers St

if you like to climb up big hills its your ideal place to go. there are small lakes for you to feed the ducks and swans. lots of people like to run round there its not my thing but seems to be popular. great for walking the dog and a good short cut in the car to the other side of town. has a great carnival in the summer too.

Nothing like a sunday morning walk here on a brisk day from the car park at the pond with the swans. walk up the road its a good 40-60 mins walk round trip you can also go off track up the hill if you have lots of energy !

The most significant piece of nature in Edinburgh. I have never been tired of climbing this hill since I lived here. In fact, it even gets better and better every time I do that. Loveeeeeeeeeeeeee :)
