The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Cotswold Outdoor Edinburgh

72 Rose St, Edinburgh EH2 2NN, UK – 0131 341 2063

I was looking for hiking boots. The staff is really helpful and help me find the perfect boots! They took the time to do me feet measurements. Great choice of shoes but not too overwhelming.

Great place for finding a pair of walking shoes. The staff are friendly and helpful without feeling overly sales like pushing extra products. If you're needing outdoor gear or supplies in Edinburgh city centre, this is a good place to start.

Go Outdoors

65 W Harbour Rd, Edinburgh EH5 1PW, UK – 0344 387 6826

Fantastic range of equipment for all your needs. Staff are extremely knowledgeable and capable to help in most circumstances.

Super friendly and knowledgeable staffs there. Carry a wide range of outdoor equipments at competitive prices.

Tiso Edinburgh Outdoor Experience

41 Commercial St, Edinburgh EH6 6JD, UK – 0131 554 0804

Terrific range of outdoor clothing and equipment, plus bikes and other gear at very reasonable rates. Nice coffee shop on the premises too.

Very helpful young man at the walking boots section. Tried on lots of boots but was unsure about the size. This was mainly due to me as first time buyer of walking boots. However he was patient and very helpful which is why I am posting this review. If all staff at tiso are like this then they have got it right.

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the country. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks..

Camping and Caravaning

Edinburgh Caravan Club Site

35-37 Marine Dr, Edinburgh EH4 5EN, UK – 0843 504 8772

Probably the friendliest nicest people you could meet. Just 2 nights on site, but guaranteed to go back. Spotlessly clean and laid out so pleasantly, greenery all round. Saw a wee wren threatening a cat!! The mini bus that runs into the city was such a bonus, friendly entertaining drivers.

Lovely place! Very spacious setting, very private and well separated by bushes and trees. Bathrooms are not brand new but they are in excellent condition and very clean. They have separators for the sinks too, for more privacy. They were designed with considerable attention to detail. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Also has cheap WiFi with coverage on the whole site

Nordic Outdoor, Granton

225 Granton Rd, Edinburgh EH5 1HD, UK – 0131 552 3000

Great range of products and amazing service. I ordered a product yesterday on the website and it arrived today in the best conditions.

Being far south of the border I wasn't in the ideal position of being able to choose an item hands-on; it had to be specific: a Gransfors Bruks axe (mini hatchet) to add to my set and I wanted it Goldilocks (just right) as per grain pattern in the shaft. I can't say enough for the helpfulness of these guys, one of whom went into the stores and selected one out of what sounded like a plentiful stock and which exceeded all expectations - it's an absolute gem. With Gransfors you have to be prepared to pay an arm and a leg for the world's best, but the price was the most reasonable I could find out there. Nordic's service was great, it arrived less than 48hrs after ordering and I reckon I'll be using these guys from now on. Thanks Nordic :)

DD Hammocks

7 Quayside St, Edinburgh EH6 6EJ, UK – 0131 555 5001

Amazing quality and service

Bästa butiken för ett aktivt friluftsliv. Jag kan inte ge nog med ovationer för DD Hammocks dom vet vad dom gör. Dessutom har dom snabbare leveranstid än leverantörerna i Sverige. Dom är bäst.
