“A circular route along six of Edinburgh’s hills and the fascinating mysteries and histories that surround them.”
It is said that Edinburgh was originally built on seven hills, in a sort of homage to the Seven Hills of Rome. However, the fact that there are more than seven hills in Edinburgh gives rise to the debate as to which hills are included in the named seven. For this hike, together with Tilly, we have included the six that are the most accessible and make the best hiking route. They are all within the main city, and have fantastic views stretching across it to the Firth of Forth and beyond.
