"Starting beside Waverley Station and finishing by Prince’s Street Gardens, this circular four-mile loop offers a different take on sightseeing. Led by a friendly local guide and personal trainer, this jog takes in all the famous sights (the Royal Mile, Carlton Hill, Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh Castle…) as well as corners few ever see including a secret 17th century garden. Rest assured, the pace is slow and steady and caters for running novices (like me) making this perfect for getting your bearings, hearing some stories and getting some air in your lungs."
