Explore the views of Edinburgh, climbing the famous "7 Summits" and visiting Edinburgh Castle.
Could there be a better way to discover historic Edinburgh than by experiencing it from seven incredible viewpoints? Based in the heart of Edinburgh, you'll climb the seven hills that surrounded the city - including the extinct volcano of Arthur's Seat, Calton Hill (the lowest of the hills), and of course Castle Rock and Edinburgh Castle.
This urban challenge includes over 900m of climbing, and around 35km of hiking should you choose to complete the Challenge in a single day. But we favour a more leisurely approach, to savour the atmosphere, culture, food and drink that the city has to offer.
Hi Caroline! Here's a route I created - https://out.ac/Jmwqg I ran this route a few years back and it was a great day out if not knackering! If it's February you are planning I would definitely expect quite a bit of mud on route just so you know. Hope it goes well and enjoy Edinburgh it's a beautiful city!
