Take a stroll along the Walkway a public footpath and cycleway, along the Water of Leith. Edinburgh is built on different levels and the part of the Water of Leith Walkway that runs from Stockbridge to the Dean Village demonstrates this vividly. From Stockbridge walk upstream through the deep gorge to the Dean Village on the site of old watermills. This ravine is dramatically spanned by the Dean Bridge, designed by Thomas Telford in 1832.

Ten miles to the north-west of Edinburgh city centre, on the shore of the Firth of Forth between the Forth Bridge, Forth Road Bridge and the Queensferry Crossing. The prefix South serves to distinguish it from North Queensferry, on the opposite shore of the Forth. Both towns derive their name from the ferry service established by Queen Margaret in the 11th century, which continued to operate at the town until 1964, when the Road Bridge was opened. Possible to walk along the coast from South Queensferry through the Dalmeny Estate to Cramond Village - 4.5 miles.
