The Mighty Stride and Big Stroll leave together in pulses at 9am, head round Roseburn Park and then onto the footpath towards Maidencraig. The walk continues on the shores of the Forth at Gypsy Brae. A few hours later, our Wee Wanderers will set off and make the journey from Gypsy Brae back to Murrayfield. The route then moves through lower Granton, along the picturesque shore line, before returning to the footpath at Trinity.
At this point, our walkers wave goodbye and go their separate ways until they meet again for a party back at Murrayfield.
The Big Stroll route takes a right turn and heads back to Murrayfield via Easter Drylaw while our Mighty Striders carry on and make a left turn and head to Victoria Park, they continue on to Portobello and the promenade. The route then makes its way to Bingham Medway then continues on the footpaths and along the old Innocent Railway line to the iconic Holyrood Park. Then the route takes us through the world famous Edinburgh city centre, past the bright lights of the Playhouse before heading north and back to Goldenacre Footpath, past Easter Drylaw and then on to a grand finale at Murrayfield.
