Places to Walk

Edinburgh is a very walkable city, and just walking down a street in the city centre, there is so much to see, even just the buildings (Georgian in the New Town, much older in the Old Town). However, here are some more suggestions. Most of these are good for cycling too.
https://www.visitscotland.com/info/towns-villages/union-canal-p662841 Access from Lochrin Basin, and walk as far as you want, for a different perspective on the city.
