Fine day so walked from where I was staying, Orchard Toll to Arthur's Seat and back via the High Street and Princes Street for a wee bit sight seeing and shopping (as you do).
After Arthur's Seat walked over to hill above St Margaret's Loch and down to Holyrood park that way for a different perspective over Edinburgh.
