The Walks

For the visitor Edinburgh is also an excellent place to wander aimlessly, for it's almost impossible to lose your bearings. Everywhere you look there's a recognizable landmark, whether it's the crags of the castle rock, the soaring black spire of the Hub, the shaggy brown flanks of Arthur's Seat, or the steely grey of the Firth of Forth. Apart from being delightful in themselves, these views are your constant companions whichever way you turn by virtue of the fact that the city is built on so many hills.

You can download the app for iphone and get themed walks in Edinburgh, point to point or simply create your own walk and save to walkit for others to use.
