Reading Time: 3 minutes Hello everyone! Here’s a blog post about some of my favourite weekend walks near Edinburgh (but not in the city centre). I don’t own a bike so every place that I mention is accessible with Lothian buses (Edinburgh’s normal city buses). You can check Google maps and the Lothian bus app for bus numbers and […]
