Walk Dalmeny Estate, Edinburgh

Just a short drive from Edinburgh is Dalmeny Estate. The land stretches across to the Firth of Forth, with sandy beaches to walk along. The views extend across to Fife, and back to Edinburgh, where the familiar outline of Arthur’s seat is still visible. A quiet path weaves through the estate, leading you from the shadow of the Forth Rail Bridge to the village of Cramond, passing through woodland, beaches and even a castle. Dalmeny House sits proud in the manicured landscape, a grand family home that commands attention from visitors to the estate. Learn about the Dalmeny Estate and how to visit in this post!

James and I substituted our hopes visiting Maltese temples in favour of a 2 hour bus to Pitlochry. Here’s my holiday guide to the best things to see and do in Pitlochry, Scotland.
