The seventh stage of the John Muir Way starts by passing beneath the iconic Forth rail bridge before following the coastline by Barnbougle Castle and Dalmeny House. It leads through Cramond into the outskirts of Edinburgh, passing through residential areas before climbing Corstorphine Hill for a view of the city. Cycle and canal paths lead to The Meadows, south of the city centre. Edinburgh has all facilities but the actual route doesn't pass many places to buy food (only the Cramond Brig pub) until near the end so a detour would be needed.
