Braid Burn Walk

Edinburgh Walks

An amazing undiscovered walk that takes you along the banks of the Braid Burn.

Take in the hidden wilderness just moments away from the city. Along the way you'll encounter the Hermitage of Braid House in a steep glen. Carrying on up the hill takes you to Blackford Hill with panoramic views. If you decide against the hill climb you can take a path which goes directly to Braid House. 

Make sure you preload the maps before going on this walk.

The walk starts in Morningside from Braid Road.
Walk south down Braid Road from the intersection between Braid Road and Hermitage Drive and look out for the small entrance on your left.

Either park on one of the side streets or take one of buses 5,11,15,16,38 or 41 to get to Morningside and take a short walk. 

Length: 1.5 miles
Time: 1 hour
