DescriptionThis 90 minute cycle tour avoids Edinburgh’s traffic & offers panoramic views of the city, coast & countryside. If you want to sightsee or walk up Artur's Seat it is usual possible to accommodate such requests. Starting from Blackfriars Street turn left into Cowgate & go straight through the first traffic lights & into Holyrood Road. Continue towards the New Scottish Parliament & Dynamic Earth. Turn right at The Scotsman Building & cycle towards Holyrood Park. Cross road with care into park by Dynamic Earth & continue riding along cycle path going to the left. This path passes Holyrood Palace & St Margaret’s Loch with ruins of St Anthony’s Chapel. Turn right & go up hill immediately after the water’s end. This is the start of the ascent up Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano & Edinburgh’s highest peak. The steep ascent is well worth the effort, with magnificent views. Secure your bikes at the car park near Dunsapie Loch at the top of road & climb to the summit & back (45 mins walk), if you want. Return to the bikes and cycle on down towards Salisbury Crags with wonderful views of Edinburgh Castle & The Old Town. Turn left at both the first & second mini roundabouts and cycle down the road by Duddingston Loch & the ancient church. The peaceful ‘secret garden’ (Dr Neil’s Garden) is in the grounds of Duddingston Manse, next to church, which is well worth visiting. Return to the Edinburgh town center along the Innocent Railway Cycle Path which brings you back to Holyrood Park or, by passing through a long tunnel, return via the busy St Leonard’s Road & Pleasance which also brings you back to Cowgate again. If there is time at the end of the tour you might also take in Grassmarket before returning to Blackfriars Street.
