In light of updated Scottish Government advice regarding Coronavirus we have taken the decision to close public access to our staffed properties and our events have been postponed until further notice. If you would like to keep up to date about our events please sign up to our newsletter.

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert loved the Scottish Highlands and they wanted to turn Holyrood Park into a reflection of this, right in the middle of Edinburgh.  

Their vision involved a great number of ambitious engineering projects and allowed local people to access the park.  

This guided walk will visit many of the Victorian landscape improvement sites from lochs to roads in Holyrood park.

The route is over 3 miles long and contains some slopes including one long, steeper section. Pavement surface is tarmac.
