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

Nordic Outdoor, Granton (Tent Showroom Only)

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

Great place to buy Nordic outdoor equipment. This particular branch is dedicated to tents so if you are looking for clothing and most accessories then visit one of the other branches.

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

Cotswold Outdoor

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

Prices similar to competitors, but they offer student discount so that's what gets me inside. A fairly large range and big sized shop (not as large as in Liverpool though). Staff friendly, and helpful. Only issue being a couple things didn't have price labels so you would have to find/ask staff.

I find it very difficult to get boots, rucksack and hiking clothing which fit me, to the point where I've just been using stuff I've owned for years which isn't great, but at least I know what the problems are. But after two weekends of not-very-enjoyable hiking, feeling too hot, too wind-blown, and too wet, and constantly trying to adjust by taking things off and putting other things on and then off again, I decided to try Cotswolds (I normally shop at the less pricey Mountain Warehouse). And I'm glad I did: the lovely sales assistant, Sarah, listened really well to what I wanted and didn't want, and found several really good options which fit me and had the features I wanted, and she talked me through several rucksack options, discussing very knowledgeably all the features, and I'm really, really happy with my purchases. I went into the shop feeling I probably wouldn't find anything close to what I wanted - this has happened many times before - and I've come away feeling satisfied that the rucksack and jacket I bought are the best possible options for me. The shop has lots of good stock, but Sarah's help was crucial for me.

Go Outdoors

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

Best Service ive ever experienced! You can find everything because of the Service and the well structure.

Excellent service from Stephanie w. Very welcoming. Will use again

WalkingWorld.jpg
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 UK. 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.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Edinburgh Caravan Club Site

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

One of the best place to stay. We spend there two nights at the beginning and at the end of our tour in Scotland in Edinburgh. There is a very nice customer service. You get a map to the bathrooms, which are one of the best we met in other campsites. Amazing organization, views and it's close to the sea and city. I would definitely visit them again.

This site is very close to the Firth of Forth, across a road and down a steep slope and you are there. We used public transport to visit the city, the buses do not give change and we found that a £4 day ticket was cheaper if you wanted to visit more than one attraction. It's is £1.70 per ride otherwise. By walking up the path at the side of the site and reaching the main road you have the choice of several bus routes, leaflets are available at reception. We found the staff very helpful and gave assistance with coinage. Note the Britannia is about 4 miles from the site. Would recommend that the approach to the site is via the city bypass (A720) it would seem that all roads in the area are in need of repair.

Dog People is such a great website if you have dogs who go on holiday with you. Just enter your location and everything from dog friendly Bed and Breakfasts and Hotels to dog friendly walks and beaches come up. The Dog People site covers Bed & Breakfast, Holiday Parks, Hotels, Self Catering, Pubs & Food, Days Out. Enjoy!
'Walks with Buggies' is a must for walking parents with young children, babies or even grannies and grandpas! If you would like to walk around Granton+%28Edinburgh%29 or Edinburgh just select your nearest town, length of walk and type of walk. You will not only be able to download detailed OS maps free of charge but you can read reviews of walks and their ratings - and add your own afterwards! Enjoy
